Here is how I made my magazine bead bangle:
- Magazine beads (or other long and semi-large beads)
- Elastic string
- Smaller spacer beads
Step 1. Cut a piece of the string about 2 1/2 or 3 feet long. Next thread beads as shown:
Step 2. Add another magazine bead (or other large bead) on the right side. Then take the left side of the string and thread it through the second magazine bead (or other) as shown:
Step 3. Pull gently on both sides of the string. It should now look like this:
Add two more spacer beads on either side of your work and then one more magazine bead on the right side. Now repeat step 3.
Continue working in this manner until your work can wrap around your wrist snugly. Fold bangle in half and tie ends together in convenient places.
