To make it:
  1. First Cheryl removed the toggle ring and bar from the charm bracelet.
  2. She then folded the bracelet into thirds and secured the ends with a jump ring.
  3. She connected one end of her stretchy cord to the charm bracelet and threaded beads onto the cord.  She alternated Sparkle Glass Beads with Silver Metal Spacer Beads.  10 glass beads should be just the right length.
  4. She then secured the other end of the stretchy cord to the charm bracelet.
  5. Now Cheryl made 3 beaded dangles with ball end head pins, glass sparkle beads and metal spacer beads.
  6. For the final touch, Cheryl added her charms.  She chose and Adventure travel theme.  But you could any charms you like.

Cheryl’s Tip:  Add a drop of E-6000 adhesive to the stretch cord knots for a secure connection.

Now you have the perfect bracelet.  Chain and stretch in one.

You can easily change out the look of this bracelet by switching the beads.  Try using 8mm glass pearls for another great look.
