There is loads of Arm Party potential in our latest craft box. Make your stack of bracelets using small and colourful Czech glass seed beads. Wear a bunch for a mix and match arm party, simply wear solo or make and share with your friends.
Once you start making them you won’t want to stop. Friendship bracelets have found their way back into today’s pop culture, making colourful statements all across the world.
What You Make
Make up to 20 dainty beaded bracelets.
What You Learn
  • Simple to make, use a colourful selection of Czech glass small seed beads, strung on durable fine steel cable and finished with a clasp.
  • Learn how to secure clasps and customise your unique style using out step by step instuction sheets.
Materials
Bead sizes range from 3mm - 5mm with a variety of shapes, (round, facetted and oblongs) and finishes (rainbow, pearl, opaque, transparent) to create your own patterns and more.
Choose from 5 Colourways
Each colourway = x6 packets of seed beads.
Select one of the following colour combinations:
  • mixes and rainbow
  • oranges and blues
  • yellows, teals and pink
  • lime, turquoise and lemon

Hot Tips:
Individual wrists measure differently. Use approx 8cm more of wire than the length required. An average wrist for an adult woman is 17cm.
Use the beads to make 10 necklaces instead.
Customise by adding brass charm initials, crystals, tassels and more! Layer your chokers to make a statement.
