Make yourself a pretty Macramé bracelet with NEW gemstones and gondola connector!

Step 1

To fit the beads inside the gondola connector, tie your thread to one of the ends, pass it under the connector and up and through the bottom hole. Thread on 5 beads and pass the cord through the bottom hole and tie it to the connector end. 

Step 2

Cut 3 x 30cm lengths of cord. Tie two of the cords to each end of the connector. Thread a bead onto both cords and tie a knot to secure it. Continue to add a bead and tie a knot until you have reached 5 cm. Repeat this step for the opposite side.

Step 3

Take the 4 ends of the centre cords, cross them so they point in the opposite directions and lay them side by side (see image) and then do a macramé braid (approx. 6 or 7 square knots) for your sliding knot.

Step 4

 

Start your Macramé knotting by following the step by step diagrams below.

– Take your right hand cord and pass it over the middle two cords.
– Next, take your left hand cord and place it over the right cord. Move the left cord under the centre cord and up through the middle of the loop on the right side.
– Pull the threads to finish one half of your knot.
– Repeat this process on the opposite side by starting by crossing the left and cord over the middle cords.

Repeating this process once on each side makes ONE full square knot.

Step 5

Secure the ends with a drop of clear drying glue or clear nail polish, being careful not to glue the sliding knot to the centre cords running through it (otherwise it will not be able to slide and adjust). Try gently pulling the centre cords through the sliding knot while the glue dries.
Trim the ends so the sliding knot is neat.
Finish your bracelet by threading a bead on to your 4 tail threads and knot them in place.
