{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. 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. This might seem a little tricky a first but I promise once you have done it a dozen times you’ll be sorted….! If you need a hand then leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.

T-Shirt Bracelets SATURDAY, JUNE 4, 2011 | Comments: 45 Brightly colored t-shirts that are too small for my daughters now, have found new life as bracelets. For this project you will need some old t-shirts and a bunch of bangle bracelets. Try using old bangles that you already own, check thrift stores or pick up some up for a few dollars at Target, Walmart – or even the sale bins at Old Navy. Morse Code Wrap Bracelet My obsession with these wrap bracelets came just in time for this season of gift giving. They are stylish and fun to wear, they come together quickly and can be easily personalized. This personalization idea came to me when I realized I didn't have enough beads to make a full double-wrapped bracelet so I needed to bring in some other colors. Rather than add them in a random pattern, I decided to use Morse Code to add secret dot and dash messages to the bracelets. I made this one for myself.

Sliding Knot Instructions I just love this necklace finishing technique. No clasp to buy, and so easy to get the necklace on and off fast. This sliding closure is a row of square knots knotted around the necklace strands.
