Set of Joyful Bracelets with Red, White and Gold
Elastic bracelets with electrocardiogram link
Star Charm elastic bracelet
Fishtail bracelet with cabochon
Waxed cord 0.8mm red
Waxed cord copper 1mm
Link for cabochon of 20mm
Polaris cabochon ochre 20mm
Endcap fits 5.5mm cord
Stainless steel lobster clasp 12mm
Double loop ring 5mm gold
Stainless steel extender chain
For the braiding I used two wires of red waxed cord and 1 wire of copper waxed cord. So in total you are braiding with 6 wires. Like this it will fit the endcap for 5.5mm cord. You can also use more (or less) wire and use an end cap accordingly. Do keep in mind that it will be more difficult to get the wires through the eye of the link if you use more wires.
Golden bracelet with rose charm
How do you make this bracelet?
Unfortunately we do not have a video tutorial for the bracelet with the rose charm, but luckily it is very simple to make:
- Measure your wrist with the chain and take about 2cm off, as we will be using an extender chain to finish the bracelet.
- String your waxed cord through the links of the chain, but do not pull it tight as the chain will be squashed together. At the two ends of the chain you make a little knot with the waxed cord and secure these knots with a tiny drop of glue.
- Attach on both ends of the chain a double loop ring with on one the extender chain and on the other one a lobster clasp.
- Now all that is left to do is attach your rose charm in the middle of your bracelet with a 4mm jumpring and your bracelet is all ready to wear! :)
String an elastic bracelet
Elastic bracelet with adjustable knot:
Because you are using a link you will braid two short braids instead of one long one like you see in the video. You string the 3 wires through the eye of the link and this will be your base to start braiding. It will be easiest to secure the link with some scotch tape to the table so it will not move while you're working.
