Alphabet Beads & Pony Beads Craft Projects
Use alphabet beads and colorful decorative beads to create personalized bracelets. Pony beads representing team colors and other themes can be used to customize your design.

Stretch bracelets are convenient and simple to make, don't require clasps or hardware and therefore don't have the added cost of clasps, and more expensive flex wire. The bracelets are also easy to slip on and take off.

There are so many possibilities for creating stretch bracelets. They are great for Sunday School activities, camps, schools, fundraisers, Girl Scouts, groups and events.
