How to Make Beaded Bracelets In an Instant!
It's so easy to use Frolic and other large-hole beads and Frolic bracelets and necklaces with threaded ends to create unique beaded designs. Add "smart" beads to create interesting spacing on the design; these beads hold their position on the chain, acting as natural spacers. Please Note: As you add beads to your cord or chain, the diameters of the beads you add will effectively narrow the interior diameter of your bracelet. To ensure a good fit, you'll need to account for this in the design or when customers are choosing their chains and cords.
Unscrew the end cap on a Frolic snake bracelet or necklace.
Slide on your selected large-hole Frolic or other beads. Try “smart” beads with silicone inserts to space out beads and keep them in place.
When finished, screw the end cap back on, completing the design.
Encourage customers to collect a variety of Frolic beads--they can easily unscrew and re-arrange their beads to create a new look for every occasion.
