DIY EASY BANGLE-STYLE BRACELET KITS
With the senseless and tragic invasion of Ukraine by Russia, I wanted to find a way to help. However, as a solopreneur in year #3 of the COVID-19 pandemic, I don’t have a lot of extra cash-flow, BUT I do have oodles and oodles of beads, so I decided to create two limited edition, Ukraine-inspired BEAD STEW jewelry-making kits. I will be donating 100% of the sales from these two special kits to the Canadian Red Cross. Donations will be matched by the Canadian government until March 18, which means with your purchase, over $2200.00 could go to helping Ukraine. If you could please spread the word about this fundraiser, I’d really appreciate it. ~ Suzie, Suzie Q Studio

The tools needed to create a “bangle-style” or “stretchy" bracelets are not included in the kit. Since you'll want to have “the right tool for the job", these are the tools you’ll need...
To make a "Bangle-icious Bracelet":
Heavy Duty wire cutter (from your household tool box) or Memory Wire Cutter (DO NOT USE YOUR JEWELRY CUTTING PLIER!!!… the wire is very hard and will ruin them!), as well as Round Nose Pliers (or “needle” nose pliers from household tool box) to turn the loop on the memory wire that finishes the bracelet.

To make “roll-on” stretchy bracelets: Sharp Scissors, preferably pointy, to get a close cut to trim the stretchy cord.
For any type of jewelry-making project, you should have a good working surface so your beads don’t roll away… Our Velux Beading Mat Work Surface is an excellent choice!
Design inspiration... Because the bead and color combinations in our Serendipity BEAD STEW bracelet making kits are so unique and ultra-special, there is no wrong or right way to add the beads to the “memory” bracelet wire or make a “stretchy-style” bracelet.
The most important thing is to relax and have fun with the creation of your piece(s) because no matter what you do, your creation(s) will turn out beautifully, and friends and family will be totally impressed!
