  1. Cut 4 pieces of monofilament 18" long.
  2. Place 4 bicone beads on a piece of monofilament and run one end of the monofilament through the watch bar then back through the 4th bead creating a loop of beads around the watch bar. Pull monofilament ends to make them even.
  3. Repeat step 2 for a second strand.
  4. String flower bead and a bicone bead onto all four ends together.
  5. Repeat steps 2, 3 and 4 for two additional strands on watch bar.
  6. Place all 8 strands through the 8mm green crackle glass bead.
  7. Separate the strands into two groups of four and put a bicone bead, a flower bead and another bicone bead on each group of 4 strands.
  8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 once.
  9. Place large crimp bead on each group of 4 strands and run ends through the loop end of the metal clasp then back through the crimp bead.
  10. Make one final adjustment to the beads by pushing them up to tighten the strands evenly before crimping the crimp beads. Clip excess ends of monofilament.
  11. Make the other side of the watch band the same as steps 1 through 8. In step 9 place an additional bicone bead on each of the 4 strands before placing the bar portion of the clasp. Finish the bracelet as in step 10.
