Designer: Suki Song
Skill Level: Intermediate
This edgy bracelet is great casual men's accessory, but can also be layered for a cool, unisex look.

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.

These instructions make a 8 3/4 inch bracelet. If you would like to make a larger bracelet, adjust the quantity accordingly. You will also need a ruler and permanent black marker for this project. Purchase a little extra cork cord than what you will actually need for your project, because the ends tend to fray a little.
  1. To assemble this bracelet, start by watching the video: How to Make a Regaliz Braided Cork Cord Bracelet.
  2. In this video, you will learn how to measure and cut the cork cord, add the beads, attach the clasp, and finish the bracelet.
  3. Based upon what you learned in the video, cut your cork cord so that you have a length that is 8 1/4 inches long.
  4. Since the skull beads and joy beads are bail beads, and we don't need the bail loops for this project, you'll want to clip them off with flush cutters. Do not use your best ones, as the material is quite hard and you don't want to damage your cutters.
  5. After you clip off the loops, file down the rough edges with your diamond file and color over any exposed metal with a permanent black marker. Allow it to dry for about 15 minutes. Repeat this process for the second black skull bead, as well as the brass textured joy bead.
  6. Slide onto your cork cord: 1 black skull, 1 brass textured joy bead, and another black skull.
  7. Place some glue into the recess on one side of your clasp and slip one end of the cork cord into the recess. Allow it to dry.
  8. Repeat the previous step on the other side of your bracelet.
  9. Allow it to dry overnight!
