This isn't the first one I made, but the first one was a really awful prototype, this is the first actual wearable bracelet, haha. Any suggestions or tips would be great!





Disclaimer: I've never done one of these before - so if you have ANY questions please ask, I'll try to answer it and/or add to this tutorial.

Alright, I cut two pieces of 2mm cord about 1 yard long, 1 5/8" shank button, beading needle and 9+ yards of beading thread.
Tie both pieces of cord together with a basic knot, add button, tie another knot -

I threaded my beading needle, tie a knot at opposite end of thread, slip through knots in cord -

Thread your first bead, wrapping around the first cord, thread needle back through bead


I did this twice for each bead - add bead, around upper cord, through bead, around bottom cord, through bead, around upper cord,add bead, around upper cord, through bead, around bottom cord. So you'll have two times around each cord.

Do this until it's the length you want, tie cords once, then tie another knot about an inch further down.

Thanks. Smiley I actually ran out about half way through and had to go searching at every store that sold beads (including all the wal-marts) to find more.  Cheesy I was ready to have a panic attack, haha.

Nice! I made one of these for myself after seeing some similar bracelets in the Garnet Hill catalog a while back:





It's just like working with a beading loom, except it's only one bead wide!
