Cream & Gold/Fairy Design:

In three easy steps...

STEP 1 Cut 3 pieces of elastic around 30cm long. Thread all 3 through one Swarovski pearl. Now separate the strands and thread 3 freshwater pearls on to each strand.

STEP 2 Repeat until you have added 8 large pearls, making sure that your bracelet ends with a large pearl either side.

STEP 3 Thread on the charm carrier and knot the elastic. Add a dab of glue (or clear nail varnish) to the knot and hide underneath the charm carrier. Snip off any excess elastic. Attach the charm to the carrier using a jump ring.
