A Beautiful Mess. For the longest time I was not a "bracelet person. " They just felt awkward and heavy on my wrist the same way my ears felt when I first got them pierced when I was 13.

I received an email the other day from a lovely reader asking if I could make a tutorial on a very simple summer bracelet style that does not require a hundred knots or clasps and you can easily stack up.

I am not a fan of doing macramé knots in the summer heat so this happens to be exactly what I have had on my wrists all summer :) - waxed cotton cords - crimp beads, tube beads or any beads of your choice - scissors Measure the cord around your wrist allowing for an extra 5-6cm and cut (the cord) using your scissors. Thread as many beads as you like on the cord. Once you have enough beads on it thread one last bead and cross the cord's ends through it. Tie a small knot on one end and slide the bracelet on your wrist. Pull the other end of the cord so that the bracelet fits nicely on your wrist and tie another knot. Trim any excess cord with your scissors and there you have it :) Make it in lots of different color and bead combinations and have fun stacking them up :) Hope you like it :) xoxo.

Double knot the end of the thread when you're done, and trim the remaining thread to your desired length. Sidenote: You might need to do this again after wearing the bracelet — mine started to fray after the second wear. Add your jump rings and clasp, and you're ready to rock!
