Earth Day Element Stretchy Bracelet Set

by Megan Piper

Learn how fun and easy it is to make stretchy bracelets with this kit. Create four colorful designs, each one representing an Earth Element: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Each bracelet has a beautifully detailed charm representing an Element. We've supplied quality ingredients, including Swarovski crystals, Czech glass pony beads and lead-free pewter charms.

step 1
step 1

Attach one jumpring to each one of your four charms.

TIP - Use two pairs of pliers to open and close jumprings properly.

Put each charm with its corresponding bead colors:

  • Earth - leaf charm with green beads
  • Water - fish charm with blue beads
  • Air - feather charm with crystal clear beads
  • Fire - heart charm with orange beads

step 2

Tape one end of the stretchy cord, so your beads do not fall off the end. Choose one Element family of beads and the corresponding charm, such as the blue beads and fish charm representing the Water element.

Randomly string half of the beads on to your Stretch Magic cord.

IMPORTANT NOTE - For the other three bracelets, you will alternate pony and bicone beads.

Tie a square knot - right over left, then left over right to make a knot that's both tight and tidy. 

Add a dab of glue or nail polish on the knot and allow it to completely dry.

Carefully snip off any dangling ends of the stretchy cord without disturbing the knot.
