Step 2: Cut the wire to a length of 4 1/8 inches. Step 3: Using your Fine Step Jaw Pliers, make a "P" loop in the wire. If you don't have Fine Step Jaw Pliers, you can make your loop using round nose pliers. Step 4: Now we are going to make the Crazy 8 wire component. Begin by placing peg 1, 2, 3 and 4 in your jig as shown at right. Step 5: Place the initial loop that you made on peg 1 with the P of the loop oriented as shown below-center. Step 6: Wrap the wire around peg 2, as shown below-right. Step 16: We need to make 12 of those Crazy 8 wire components in order to complete the bracelet. Basic Sliding Knot Bracelet. Earlier this month, I shared a tutorial over at What Meegan Makes on a simple, beachy bracelet that doesn’t take anything but some cotton twine and a shell (or another summery focal piece).

Basic Sliding Knot Bracelet

Did you see this already? If not – let me show you today! What you’ll need: 36″ of twine – mine is cotton, but you could use leather or hemp – whatever you like the looks of! A focal piece that is open on two ends. Let me recommend a good place to look for supplies for this project: I actually got my shell beads and twine from my local dollar store.

Take the small end, and wrap it around *both* cords, working away from the loop you made. Now, feed the tail back the other way through your wraps, back toward the loop. Now, just tighten it.

Braided Chain Bracelet:) Crochet Bracelets:) {macramé: square knot} string & hexnut bracelet. By Kate on September 13, 2011 This bracelet has been inspired by this really wonderful “Braided Hex-nut Bracelet” tutorial which I pinned on Pinterest a while back.

{macramé: square knot} string & hexnut bracelet

Two things I absolutely love about this project are: 1) It’s cheap as chips: I already had string in the cupboard and the brass hexnuts were 3p each from the hardware shop. 2) It’s my kind of jewellery: I’m not really a girly girl IYKWIM! The bracelet I made is a bit different to the ‘braided hex-nut bracelet’ and uses macrame instead, which is great, because I promised some tutorials a while back and felt a bit bad that I hadn’t written any yet! Full instructions after the jump! Square Knot Please note: I have used different colored cord in the tutorial so that it’s easier for you to figure out whats going on! 1. 2. 3. 4.
