  4. Repeat steps 1-3 until you have made five mobius beads in your five different colours.

  5. Attach one cord end to three lengths of rattail, using glue for added security.

  6. Thread on your mobius beads in groups creaing a gradient colour pattern. Trim the length of the rattail to fit your wrist allowing for the lobster clasp. Attach the second cord end as in step 5.

  7. Attach the extension chain to one cord end using one bright aluminium jump ring. Attach the lobster clasp to the other cord end using two bright aluminium jump rings.

Variations

  • Use a single colour of rattail such as black and make mobius beads in silver, matt silver and ice black for a sophisticated look.
  • Make multicoloured mobius beads to create a rainbow or two tone effect
  • Use a brown, red, orange and gold colour scheme with rust rattail for a look ready for autumn.
