Get your creative juices flowing

Sheer magic! That's how you will feel about this bracelet that is both magically beautiful, and stunningly easy to make.
This is just Swarovski 6 mm top-drill bicones, strung on stretchy cord. I used a selection of the AB2 colours, (strung in random order), but this would work in any single colour, or a range, shading from dark to light, say. The top-drills snuggle up to each other and give the look of a complex pattern without the work.
This is a 7.5 inch bracelet, with 84 crystals. The stretchy cord makes it easy to slip on and off. You may want to make it a little smaller or larger. Figure about 11-12 crystals per inch.
Use a Surgeon's knot to secure the stretchy cord, and you may add a dab of glue to the knot if you wish.
