⊙ Sunglasses (it’s best to use a pair with thicker arms)
⊙ Seed beads
⊙ Bendable wire (small enough to fit through the bead opening)
⊙ Super glue

  • Before you get started, it’s good to have an idea of what kind of design you are going to do. I chose to do a chevron and stripe pattern. If you can’t decide on what to do, you can always pick out your color scheme first, and then just decided as you go along. Or follow this design!

  • Take your super glue and place a thin line of glue along the arm. (I lightly blew on the glue to allow it to set a bit before placing down my beads). Take the beaded wire and place it straight down on the glue, then lightly press down on the row of beads before sliding out the wire.

  • If all goes well, you have your first row! Sometimes there might not be enough glue, so if the beads don’t stick the first time, take them off and apply another thin layer of glue before trying again.

  • Continue this method for each row you place.

  • Be careful not to press down too hard on the beads when you are placing them so the super glue doesn’t seep through to your fingers.

  • When you are finished, give a good press over the beads with your finger and set your sunglasses aside for an hour or two to make sure the glue has completely set.
