Chunky Stretchy Bracelet and Earrings


(1 Votes)


Use glass beads to create this funky bracelet and earrings set from Katie Hacker. The bracelet is beaded on elastic cord, making it easy to slip on and off. 

Chunky Stretchy Bracelet and Earrings



  • Elasticity™ elastic bead cord, 1mm diameter
  • Six 12mm blue/turquoise square furnace glass slices
  • Twelve 10mm A/B finish clear faceted glass beads
  • Six 8mm silver spacers
  • G/S Hypo Cement glue
  • Designer Scissors
  • Adhesive tape


  • Two 6mm A/B finish clear faceted glass beads
  • Two 12mm blue/turquoise square furnace glass slices
  • Two 8mm silver spacers
  • Two 2" silver head pins two silver ear wires
  • Beadstorm™ Round Nose Pliers



  1. Cut a 9 1/2" length of Elasticity™. Place a piece of adhesive tape over one end to prevent the beads from sliding off. String beads in the following pattern: furnace glass bead, faceted bead, silver spacer, faceted bead. Repeat this pattern six times.
  2. Remove the adhesive tape. Tie the ends in a square knot. Place a drop of glue on the knot; let it dry. Cut off any excess cord, then tuck the knot into the nearest large-hole bead.


  1. String a faceted bead, a furnace glass bead and a silver spacer onto a head pin. Use round nose pliers to make a loop above the top bead. Wrap the extra wire around the base of the loop. Attach the loop to the lower loop on an ear wire.

Tip: When using 10-12mm beads, make the bracelet 1/4-1/2" larger than your usual size.

This is a very cute bracelet and earring set. I love the turquoise beads that was used for this chunky bracelet and I like that you use elastic because sometimes when you are making for a gift you cannot judge the perfect size of the wrist and the elastic can be stretched to fit a wide range of wrists so you do not have to ask to measure and spoil the surprise. I love that the earrings are also included in the tutorial. So very fast and easy to make the whole set. I can not wait. Anyone else love this set?
