Retired - Russel Bracelet

PROJECT B2065
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
Here is a classic knotted style featuring the Vintaj Donut Pendant and our Faux Leather Cord. By using two lark's head knots, you trap the donut pendant for a seamless cool look.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a bracelet that is 7 1/2 inches in length. To adjust the length, simply add or subtract faux leather cord equally to both sides.
  1. Taking your Vintaj relief block, and gently buff the outer rim and textured part of the Vintaj donut pendant. When you have your desired look, set this piece aside.
  2. Cut two pieces of faux leather, 4 1/4 inch each.
  3. Take one piece of faux leather and fold it in half. Taking the folded end put it through the donut pendant and tie a lark's head knot. Straighten out the piece of faux leather so it lays flat, and the two ends line up. See photo for reference. Repeat this step for the other piece of faux leather.
  4. If you need to adjust the length so that it is shorter, you can cut the faux leather pieces equally now. Keep in mind that the clasp will add 3/4 inch.
  5. Taking one ribbon crimp, place it onto one end of the faux leather so that covers both 5mm ends. Crimp the ribbon crimp with your flat nose pliers. Repeat this step on the other side.
  6. Open one jump ring and thread it through the loop of the ribbon crimp, attach one end of the magnetic clasp. Close the jump ring. Repeat on the other side.
  7. All done!
