How to start the 3-strand bracelet?
Step 1: Cut 3 strands of 1mm leather cord to approximately 30cm long and thread through the shank of button. Keep 3cm for the short ends, make a loop around it with the longer ones and then pass the longer ones down through the loop. Fasten the knot slightly.
Step 2: Straighten the leftover leather cords and decide the ideal length of bracelet. Next, find the 1/3 location and tie an overhand knot.
Step 3: Slide on the 8mm glass beads to make the middle 1/3 of bracelet. Finally, secure the beads with another overhand knot.
