Follow our instructions to make this black suede cord and gold cupchain bracelet, using the macramé knot.

Step 1

Cut your suede cord to your required length. We used approx. 1 metre worth of suede cord to create this bracelet. Using pliers cut your cupchain to your required length- we used 16cm (16 crystals). Please note: This bracelet was designed for S/M wrist size.

Step 2

Find the centre of the cord, tie a loose knot. Create half square knot. Glue and insert this into one of the magnetic clasps.

Step 3

Place your cupchain in between the cord and create a half square knot around it. You may want to apply a dab of glue to the side of the first cupchain to the cord. Wait for this to dry and create another half knot in the other direction to create a full square knot.

Step 4

Continue to square knot around the cupchain until you have ran out of cupchain.

Step 5

Once you have reached the end apply a dab of glue to the side of the cupchain to the suede cord. Tie a final knot and glue into the other magnetic clasp. (Make sure the clasp is the right way up before applying glue.)
