I constructed this bracelet months ago - it took me about 5 minutes. Ever since, I have puzzled over the best way to get the beads to stay put and not drift along the bracelet spoiling the design.
Eventually I decided the only option was a dab of glue at each end of the design. I held the beads in place whilst the glue was setting by using those little miniature craft clothes pegs. It worked and you can hardly detect the glue.
The green beads are "miracle beads" and they sort of glow like little lightbulbs in certain levels of light.
So after months of kicking around in my bead box, the bracelet is ready to wear. All I have to do now is make a necklace to match.
