Create this Bracelet using Hand crafted Wood Beads and Leather Cord.

Step 1

Cut 2 16 inch lengths of leather cord.

Step 2

Thread the beads on in the order that you would like. Both cords go through the leather beads.

Step 3

Cut 2 lengths of leather cord x 6 the length of the bracelet you would like to make.

Step 4

Using both lengths of cord tie a square knot. Tie 3 square knots before the spike bead.

Step 5

Tie a square knot around the spike bead but allow the cords to go behind it. (see photos) This makes the bracelet neater.  Tie 3 square knots between each bead.

Step 6

For the silver beads, push them as close to the knotted cord as possible, then tie a square knot around them. It takes a bit of manoeuvring to keep them together.

Step 7

Continue until the end of the bracelet design.  Glue the end using GS Hypo Cement glue, and leave over night.

Step 8

Cut off the ends of the knots. Curve bracelet to make a circle.

Step 9

Cut the remaining leather cord in 2. (This bracelet uses all of the 5m reel) Use both strands of the cord to tie square knots. 4 knots should be sufficient.

Step 10

Thread the small leather beads on the 2 leather cords, tie the ends of the cords to keep the beads in place.

Step 11

Glue the knots and leave overnight.
Cut the ends off and the bracelet is finished.
