Start with the base. Mine was 40 beads.
Cut out some string that fits around your wrist but is also like 2 or 3 inches bigger than your wrist. And add your beads.
To make the connectors, but a pretty long piece of string and for mine I used 12 beads, but it all depends if you have a long or short hand. Don't cut off the excess string till you tie it to the bracelet.
The first connector should be tied to the knot of the base bracelet. Make 2 more connectors same number of beads and tie them onto the other connectors.
Since mine were 12 beads, I tied the next connectors inbetween the 6th and 7th beads.
For me, the ring was 17 beads. Make sure it fits and tie it onto the last connector. Enjoy(:
