Retired - Electric Pop Bracelet

PROJECT B1018
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
Get that trendy pop of neon color with this quick and easy Shambhala style knotted bracelet. Bright bold colors will bring you right through the spring and into the summer!
Instructions
  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How to Make a Shambhala Bracelet, Part I: Macrame Square Knots.
  2. Begin by folding one strand of 2mm tangerine silk fabric string in half. Tie a strand of 2mm bright pink silk fabric string in a knot about 5" down from the fold. Make sure that the pink string is tied in the middle of the strand, with even amounts of pink string to either side.
  3. Using the knot that tied the pink string on as the first half of a square knot, tie two square knots onto the tangerine string with the pink string.
  4. Thread a 10mm silver plated round metal bead onto the tangerine string with the two strands together.
  5. Tie one half of a square knot after the bead.
  6. Thread another metal bead onto the tangerine string and tie the other half of the square knot after the bead.
  7. Repeat this process with ten more metal beads, and half of a square knot after each bead. Make sure you alternate which direction you are knotting each time (over, over, under through followed by under, under, over through) to keep your bracelet straight.
  8. After the last bead and half of a square knot, finish the square knot and tie another to have two complete square knots.
  9. Next, watch the video: How to Make a Shambhala Bracelet, Part II: Macrame Knot Finishing, and finish off your knotting as shown. Apply some E6000 glue to the strings in your knot, and when you trim your strings, apply a bit of glue to the ends of your strings. Allow the glue to dry for at least an hour before moving on.
  10. Finally, watch the video: How to Make a Shambhala Bracelet, Part III: Sliding Knot Clasp. Use one of the pieces that you trimmed off of the end of the pink string to tie a sliding knot clasp onto your bracelet. Finish your knot clasp in the same manner as you did your other knotting, making sure to secure with some glue. Allow the glue to dry for at least an hour before moving on.
  11. Tie the ends of the orange strings into an overhand knot on each side, several inches from the sliding knot clasp. Trim the ends about 3/4" from the knot and apply a bit of glue to the ends.
  12. Allow all of the glue to dry for at least 24 hours before wearing.
