Instructions

Note: Components and tools listed within this INSTRUCTIONS box and the printer-friendly PDF, if available, may have been discontinued since this project was published. Refer to the PURCHASE COMPONENTS and TOOLS AND OTHER SUPPLIES sections for current availability.

This bracelet measures approximately 6.75 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the macrame length knotted respectively.
  1. Begin by cutting two lengths of S-Lon. One 2 feet, and one 5 feet.
  2. Fold the 5 foot cord in half and tie an overhand knot with the folded cord and the 2 foot cord; so you will have three cords at the bottom and a loop at the top.
  3. Separate the long cords to the side and the short single cord to the center. Place them into the macrame board.
  4. If you are unfamiliar with making macrame square knots, please watch our video: Macrame Square Knots. From what you learned in the video make 10 macrame square knots.
  5. Then add one bead on to the center strand. Make sure the two cords sit behind the flower bead. Make 2 full square knots. Repeat to add 12 beads total. Finish with 10 macrame square knots.
  6. To add the fold over crimps, secure them into place a few square knots from the last bead, trim the cords and add a dab of your adhesive. Use the Fold Over Crimping Pliers to secure it into place.
  7. Open one jump ring and attach it to the loop of the fold over crimp and to the loop of the magnetic clasp. Repeat to attach the clasp to the other side.
