Use those simple metal ring bracelets and combine with some bugle beads to make something even better!
For my last birthday, my grandma gave me a set of those thin metal bracelets which look basically like a thin ring made of metal. I have to admit that I never really liked these bracelets because they're too thin to be worn alone (and with a set of ten you could as well give the other nine away if you're only wearing one of them) and they tend to be quite noisy when worn in a bunch. So I took two of the bracelets and used them to make something I liked much better: A super simple bracelet using tube beads. Enjoy!

First, cut the beading thread to the desired length, depending on how much of the circumference of the bracelet you want to cover. For the one I made, take 5.3 feet. Take the first bugle bead and place it in the middle of the thread. Now take the first metal ring bracelet and place it on the right side next to your bead like in the picture. Then, take the the thread on the same side and move it over the ring, around, under the ring and through the bead. This should look like in the picture.
Take the second bead and place it between the metal rings. Fasten it in the same way as the first one. But once for both sides of the nylon thread is enough this time. Remember: over, around, under, through. This is important. Your bead will be loose and not centered between the rings otherwise.
