Yoga Retreat Orange Knot Bracelet

PROJECT B813
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Orange, turquoise, and gold tones dominate this yoga-inspired knotted leather bracelet. The knots hold the bead segments in place while adding a decorative element to the design. The finishing touch is a petite magnetic clasp that is easy to get on and off your wrist.
Instructions
  1. Cut 18 inches of your leather cord. Fold the cord in half and find the mid way point. Tie a simple overhand knot so it sits right in the middle. Pull tight.
  2. Onto one end of your cord string on 1 seed bead, the hamsa hand charm, and 1 more seed bead. Slide them down so they rest next to knot in the middle. Right after the last seed bead, tie another knot and again pull tight. Always pull your knots tight during this project.
  3. Tie another knot approximately 3/4 inch from the knot your just tied. Please refer to photo and you can also create a larger gap too if you like. Next slide onto your cord: 2 seed beads, 1 spacer bead, and 2 more seed beads. Slide these down so they rest right next to the knot you just tied and then tie another knot after them.
  4. Repeat the previous step on the other side of your bracelet.
  5. Now that the beadwork and knotting is done, you can choose how long you want your bracelet to be. Please note that the clasp and jump rings do add about 1/2 an inch. Lay your bracelet flat on a ruler or wrap around your wrist for sizing. Cut your leather ends to the length you want. I found it easiest to line up the two sides with the charm in the direct center and then cut the cords at the same time so they are even.
  6. Place onto an end a fancy crimp cord end with loop. Crimp the center section with your chain nose pliers. Open a jump ring and attach it to the loop as well as one half of your magnetic clasp.
  7. Repeat the previous step on the other side of your bracelet.
  8. Have fun wearing!
