Cheap, Fun, and Easy ;)

I really love making these bracelets, and their on stretchy string so it's really simple.All you do need to know how to do is tubular peyote but it's really easy to learn with stretchy string and pony beads!
Materials Needed:
Stretchy String
Pony Beads
And You
I cut my string to the length of my arm span, I'm not sure the exact length.
String on as many beads as you need to fit comfortably around your wrist. Remember to
string colors on in pairs of two.
Tie the two strings together. I use an over hand knot, but that's just my preference you can tie it however you prefer.
and it should look like this :)

since my string is coming out of a cream bead you add a cream bead and go through a pink bead

Then continue around the bracelet

String on another bead (make sure the bead you string on is the same color as the bead
your string is coming out of)
then put the sting through the next bead and pull tight
Do that all the way around. Then when you get to the beginning again continue in the tutorial :)

In order to "step up" to the next level you must string your cord through the two top beads of the row your working on
(you can't tell in the picture but I do have a blue bead on my string also)
Do This Until you have your desired number of rows (I did 8 rows) Then continue in the tutorial to see how to finish off your bracelet
Almost Done :) Now put your string up through your work to make a loop

then put your string through that loop to make another loop DO NOT pull

Then put it through that loop and pull tight

This is what it should look like when you're done :)
I hope this was easy for you to understand. If you have any questions please leave them in the comments
and I will try to respond as soon as possible. Thanks and please Enjoy the rest of my blog :)
