We no longer stock the day-glo colors of rubber tubing, but this is still a fun bracelet when strung with basic black rubber tubing.

Designer Tips

  • Start by threading the rubber tubing onto the coil of memory wire. When you have covered the desired amount (1-1/2 coils in this case), cut the memory wire from the coil with the heavy-duty cutters.
  • With scissors, trim the excess tubing from the other end of the memory wire. This will allow you to use the exact amount of tubing without waste.
  • Add a drop of glue to the inside of one cord end, and insert tubing-coated wire. Allow to dry.
  • String charm onto bracelet.
  • Repeat the gluing on the other end of the bracelet.
