This one was soooo easy to make - it took me longer to choose the beads than it did to make the bracelet. Seriously, anyone can do this!
What I used:
- larger metal beads (mine have Celtic knots on them)
- Czech glass beads (mine are lavender)
- spacer beads
- waxed linen (or any cord that will fit your beads)
- 2 cord ends
- 2 jump rings
- closure (I used a lobster clasp)
I cut the waxed linen cord about 2 times the circumference of my wrist (I like to have extra cord just in case - and I can always trim it down when I'm finished), and started adding the beads. I rearranged them a couple of times before I found the combination that I liked. Just play around with it!
Once I was happy with the arrangement, I added a cord end to one end of the waxed linen, then used a jump ring to attach one part of the lobster clasp to the cord end.
Next, I put the bracelet around my wrist to see how much of the cord needed to be trimmed. I trimmed away the excess cord from the unfinished end of the bracelet, then added a cord end. Then I attached the other part of the lobster clasp to the cord end using a jump ring.
That's it! I left some of the cord exposed because I wanted the beads to be able to move around - but you can fill the cord completely if you like, or even use less beads. It's all about what looks good to you!
