Note that seal should not come into direct contact with perfumes, hand gel sanitizers or other forms of scenting agents (perfumes etc).

Metal Chain & Yarn Bracelet
If you’re searching for an eye-catching bracelet to wear, these simple patterns will surely meet the mark. When making these pieces, ensure to use double-strand elastic for extra strength, as well as beads with larger holes than average. Likewise, consider using a surgeon’s knot instead of an overhand knot; just add a dab of jewelry glue at its end before tucking into one bead to secure it further.

Elongated Spike Drop Earrings
These sleek and modern spike drop earrings will make any outfit chic and on trend. Boasting long linear silhouettes topped by spiked accents secured with hinged backs.
To create these earrings, first lay out your bead design on a headpin. Aim for having two thirds of its length covered by beads; if necessary, swap out beads until your design works well.
Once the wire has been bent into a flat loop, add rondelle beads (or other small round spacers) and wrap them around the wire loop.
When working with elastic cord, use tape on one end to prevent it from snapping off as you string beads onto it. This will also protect it from being pulled too tightly through beads and making them slip off the cord.
Select thicker stretch cord such as Stretch Magic Cord or Opelon to ensure the durability of your bracelets, or doubled elastic if your beads have large enough bead holes.
Once your bracelet reaches the length you desire, thread its wire through a seed bead and crimp bead, using your pliers to close off both components, adding a knot cover over each.
