How to make the knotted bracelet with beads?
Step 1: Create a loop as part of closure
1st, cut 3 pieces leather cords: 50cm, 100cm and 120cm long;
2nd, align one end of the cords;
3rd, fold the cords to find the center location. Then, take the 120cm-end and do wrapping around the rest two;
4th, loop the wrapped area to fit the 8mm alloy bead snugly;
5th, do another 1cm long wraps and fasten with two half hitch knots.
Step 2: Make the knotted part with beads
1st, divide the 6 leather cords into two: each includes two long working ends and one short holding end between them;
2nd, string a 8mm ally bead on the left working end and a 8mm jade bead on the right working end;
3rd, tie a complete square knot. Pull the cords moderately;
4th, repeat the 2nd and 3rd processes for a desired length of knotted bracelet.
Step 3: Create another knotted strand with new color
1st, take the rest three ends, thread the right working end through the first 8mm alloy bead. Then string one new-colored 8mm jade bead on the left working end;
2nd, tie a square knot as did in step 2;
3rd, repeat the two above processes to the last alloy bead.
Step 4: Complete the closure
1st, tie an overhand knot with all six leather cords;
2nd, string another 8mm alloy bead and secure with another overhand knot;
3rd, keep 1cm part at each end and then remove the excesses.
Slip the last alloy bead through the loop and there you’ve made your fancy square knot bracelet with beads!
This simple beaded bracelet made with square knots and leather cord is such a fashionable, comfortable and desirable accessory! Once you wear you will get a ton of compliments!
