    Step 1: Mix ICE Resin® according to instructions. Mix in Fire Opal and pour into the bezel. Let set according to directions. Attach a jump ring to each side of the bezel.

    Step 2: Slip a jump ring onto one of the lengths of the leather cord. Then thread the cord through one of the jump rings attached to the bezel, then through another jump ring. Do the same with the other side of the bezel. Thread the cord back into the first three jump rings, pulling extra length of cord through. Push the three jump rings (on the side with the cord threaded through the jump rings twice) close together. (The jump ring attached to the bezel and the jump ring on each side of this attached one.) Open a jump ring and put it through the three jump rings and close.

    Step 3: Cut a length of cord and thread it through the three jump rings on the other side. Attach these three jump rings together with a jump ring, as was done on the other side.

    Step 4: Take Cord A (the cord that encircles the bezel.) and wind it around Cord B twice (the cord coming from the same side). Bring it between the cords and through the two loops & tighten into a knot. Repeat on the other side.

    Step 5: Thread two jump rings onto the cords and pull them close to the knot. Cut the cord that was used to tie the knot leaving about a 1½” tail. Put some Leather Adhesive in between the jump rings where the knot is and tuck the end of the cord inside. Do the same with the other side & let dry.

    Step 6: Cut the ends of the remaining cord, leaving enough to tie a double & single knot on each side to make an adjustable closure. Take one end and wrap it around the other twice, then thread the end through the loops. Make sure the knot is secure, but loose enough to slide along the other leather cord.

    Step 7: Knot the end of the cord close to the larger knot. Cut and secure this smaller knot with a little Leather Adhesive.

    Step 8: Finish the other end the same way so that that knot slides along the other cord, making the bracelet adjustable.
