Here is how to make witness bracelets:
One strip of leather 16 and1/2 inches long by 1/8 inches wide.
One each of the following colored pony beads: clear, grey, red, white, blue, green, and yellow.
String the beads onto the leather strip in the following order: grey, red, white, blue, green, yellow. It is important
to have the beads in the correct order as their order tells the Gospel message.
Center the beads on the leather strip and tie a knot on each end of the group of beads. This will help to hold them in place.
Take the clear bead and string one of the leather ends through it. Take the other end of leather and start it into
the hole in the bead (entering in the opposite direction). You will not be able to push it through, but by holding the two strips of leather together on the one end and pulling on the single strand on the other end, it will pull it
Tie a knot on each end of leather. The clear bead will allow you to adjust the bracelet to fit any wrist.
