S-Lon Micro Bead Cord (color of your choice)

Scissors, glue, clipboard


Instructions:

Make's 6 1/2" cuff bracelet:  String button onto leather making ends even and then tie an overhand knot close to button.  Using your clipboard, clamp button end of leather down.  Cut approx. 5 feet of your S-lon micro bead cord.  Lay cord underneath both pieces of leather cord and center the middle while making the ends even.  Tie the bead cord onto your leather cording using overhand macrame' knots (I usually do about 3 or 4, meaning one left and one right as one)  End your knots with each piece of cord coming from the backside of the leather cord..so take one piece of your bead cord down through the center of the leather cord and to the left side UNDERNEATH the leather cord.  Do the same thing with the remaining piece of bead cord but to the right side this time.

String one 6mm firepolished bead onto the bead cord on your right side.  While holding the bead close to the end of the bead cord, string your remaining piece (from the left side) of bead cord going the opposite way through the bead (laddering technique).  Pull all the way down and hold in place and once again, take your bead cord down through the center of the leather cord and to the left and right UNDERNEATH the leather cord.  Now start stringing 2 beads each time (I did 7 rows, but you may need more if you want the bracelet to be larger).  Now string on one buddha bead in the same manner as used for stringing the firepolished.  The only different is that you will want to go through the buddha bead a 2nd time to secure it.  Repeat this process until you have the desired length of your cuff bracelet.

At the end, again, string just one bead to bring back to a narrow closure.  Now, using your macrame' square knot technique, knot around the 2 leather cord pieces to secure approx 3-4 times.  Turn the bracelet over and tie off your cording.  Secure with a dab of glue.

Now tie your knots in your leather, one right at the ending of the cord, and the next far enough down to make a big enough loop hole for your button to fit through.

Your bracelet is ready to wear & enjoy!
