I made these for Mr. Riley's sister-in-law for Christmas this year.
I'll show you how I did the bracelets - if you promise not to laugh. I hadn't entered the world of jewelry making before this, so for all I know I did it wrong.
You will need elastic beading thread. Crimp beads. Needle nose pliers. Beads of your choice. The black/silver ones are from a kit from Micheals, the glass 'pearls' are from Hobby Lobby.
Cut your beading elastic to the length you want - remembering to leave extra to tie-off and finish the ends. I found it helpful to tape down one end to the table so the beads didn't slide off.
Slide one end of each tie back through a crimp bead and pull tight.
Now if you choose, you can tie your bracelets together with a scrap of fabric or ribbon. Check out these other bracelet sets I also made as gifts.
