Bracelets are the accessory item of the year and nothing is hotter right now than bracelets made with cording. You can create hip, chic bracelets with a few art beads, some accent beads and cotton cord. These are quick and easy to make and oh-so-cute! I'm going to be showing you step-by-step how to create a sliding knot adjustable closure that can be used for a bracelet or even a necklace, if you so choose. My version shown here is a slight variation of the sliding knot technique you typically see. This one is much simpler! You can make these bracelets with any beads you like. Sweet Slide bracelets Here's what you need for the Sweet Slide bracelets: 6mm ceramic rounds by Elaine Ray Brass 3mm cornerless cubes Dark brown 1mm premium waxed cotton cord To make your bracelet, cut a piece of cord about 24 inches long. String and/or knot your beads on as desired, making sure to leave at least a 4 inch tail on each end of your bracelet. Now, you're ready to create your sliding closure! 1. Cut a separate 12" piece of cord and fold the cord back onto itself about 4". This will be your "working" cord. 2. Place the left and right bracelet cords parallel to each other with the ends in opposite directions. 3. Place the working cord on top of the bracelet cords. Hold the folded end with the short tail end in the opposite direction. 4. Loosely wrap the working cord around the bracelet cords and the tail of the working cord. 5. Make 5 wraps, moving towards the tail end of your working cord. 6. Insert the working cord through the wraps you just made, exiting the folded end. 7. Pull the ends of your working cord tight, but not super tight or you won't be able to move your bracelet cords back and forth. If desired, add some beads to the working cord tails and trim. 8. Add a few more beads to the bracelet cords, knot, trim and you're done! Be sure to leave the bracelet tails long enough to slip your hand through when the bracelet is all the way open. I hope you enjoy the tutorial!
