Saint Patrick's Day DIY Wristlet

So first things first I am not great at this at all... Sadly my camera or my mom brain didn't pick back up the video after going to do some mom things mid video so the whole second wristlet wasn't recorded... 🙃 

I did show you the completed wristlet in the photo so hopefully you can use that as some inspiration. Because I was unable to start over and re-record! (Again, due to mom reasons. AKA MY CRAZY CHILDREN) Definitely need to work on doing better this year with these tutorials! 

But let's talk about why your here WRISTLETS, so they may seem tricky but I assure you they are not as hard as you may think. They also can be made and tied off a million different ways. But this is how we do it here at Sassy Bead Shoppe and haven't had any issues doing it this way! 

You need to start for sure with a minimum of 16 beads per wristlet if you want to add a focal bead, we do 15 regular beads along with that focal bead. We like to arrange them prior to threading to create a pattern, our pattern usually always consists of the fun patterned beads then the rest is of other beads. We find that wristlets are based on your specific style and we here are EXTRA! So, we like to use different shapes of beads as well. You can also add rhinestone spacers to make it even more EXTRA! ✨

Aside from all that we make sure we have a minimum of 9 inches of cord but it doesn't hurt to add more to make sure you have enough to tie it off. We double the string because it makes the wristlet more stable but still stretchy. Our preference in string is stretch cord because it works best on all sizes of wrists. Which as a small business makes it nice to just make everything the same standard size and using the same number of beads every time. 

Really its simple, cut your string make your pattern, thread the beads on and then add your keychain and tie it off simple as that! We use a needle that we got from the craft store and cut an opening in it to just slide on the string to thread, nothing to fancy. To tie the wristlet, you wrap the string around your fingers and loop the thread under twice to make sure it is extra tight! After that you just pull the knot carefully into a bead to hide it and you're done!

It sounds complicated but it's really not, let us know if you have any questions or need bead mix suggestions to get started on making your own wristlets for you or your business!
