Retired - Mustard Fields Bracelet

PROJECT B7068
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
Juicy nuggets of pastel green prehnite gemstones are knotted on mustard-yellow silk cord in this substantial Boho bracelet. Vintaj natural brass findings lend an heirloom look.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 6 1/2 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the number of gemstone beads used. To lengthen the bracelet significantly, you will need to purchase an extra lot of gemstone beads.
  1. Take your Griffin silk off of the card. Find the end of the cord without the attached needle, and thread a twisted wire needle onto that end.
  2. Thread both ends of the Griffin silk through the small hole of the Vintaj hammered ring and make a lark's head knot.
  3. Next, watch our video on how to do pearl knotting using tweezers. (You'll be tying your knots with the 2 lengths of cord coming off of the lark's head knot, instead of 1 cord.) Tie one overhand knot with tweezers to secure the toggle ring in place.
  4. Begin knotting your prehnite gemstone beads. You may need to make double knots between some of the beads if the holes are big, to keep the beads from sliding over the knots.
  5. After you string your last bead, make a double overhand knot with tweezers. String your 2 cord ends through the center hole of the toggle bar, with the etched design facing outward. Make another double overhand knot.
  6. Take one of your cords and make an overhand knot about 1/2 inch from the toggle bar. Cut off the extra cord with thread snips. Place a dab of GS Hypo Cement glue on the knot to keep it from fraying.
  7. Repeat step 6 for your second cord end. Let the glue dry for about an hour. Enjoy your bracelet!
