Instructions for recycled beaded cuff bracelet patterns
Step 1: Make basic recycled beaded cuff bracelet patterns
1st, prepare two 42cm 1.5mm aluminum wires, fold them in half;
2nd, twist the wires, make two circles with the twisted wires; be sure that there is a small circle on one ends of the wires and there are two small loops on the other end of the wires;
3rd, cut a piece of your old jeans, cover it onto the two twisted wire circles;

5th, repeat the procedure on the other edge.
Step 2: finish making recycled beaded cuff bracelet patterns

2nd, string 6 3mm yellow glass seed beads to 0.3mm golden copper wire, fix it to brass linking ring;
3rd, wrap some circles around the brass linking ring, and string another 6 3mm yellow glass seed beads to form the second row;
4th, make another three rows in the same way;
5th, repeat the procedure to make another four beaded brass linking rings; (in these four rings, I thread 4 glass seed beads in each rows and make 4 rows in each brass linking ring) you can change the color of glass seed beads, here I choose cyan, honeydew, pink and green;
6th, glue the five beaded brass linking rings to the right place of recycled cuff.
Tada, I have finished my recycled beaded cuff bracelet patterns:
