Chan Luu Single Wrap Macrame Bracelet

Chan Luu Single Wrap Macrame Bracelet
Chan Luu bracelets are just so cool! What's great about them is that they use simple macrame techniques to produce different results, this time with the addition of beads! This tutorial adds on to my previous Square Knot Friendship Bracelets, but utilizes the beads in a different way; on the outside of the knots as opposed to the inside. What you get is a totally different result! Step 1: Gather materials. Step 2: Start the knots. Once you have a couple of square knots, take either side of the thread and add beads to these threads. Take two beads right up to the last knot. Make a square knot, making sure the beads are caught in the knot and lie right on either side of the center thread. Step 2: Continue this method. Once you have gotten one square knot set, continue to knot in this way, until your bracelet is as long as you need. You're finished! If you share/use/post this tutorial, please link back to me.

DIY Ribbon + Chain Bracelets from #MAGICLV Here’s the second DIY I led with with BurdaStyle direct from the MAGIC floor. We did these bracelets on Wednesday, the final day of the show. It was a perfect project to wrap-up with because it was fast and easy. I think we were all feeling a little bit like the walking dead after spending the 4 days running around Las Vegas 20 hours a day. Photo courtesy BurdaStyle The supplies are simple: chain + ribbon. For each bracelet you’ll need about 6″ of chain and 16″ of ribbon. Sidenote: Do you guys know about Fray Check? The last step it to clip off the (fraying) ends of ribbon at an angle and apply Fray Check. One more MAGIC DIY to come next Tuesday: Faux turban fabric headbands!

DIY Orange Bracelets Because I’m thinking orange this week I thought I’d share a couple DIYs that pre-date this blog. The bracelet above is one I did over a year ago and it’s really simple to make. The chain was from Michaels and I used embroidery floss to wrap two lengths of it together…. that’s it! It also reminds me of the project Honestly WTF posted a few months ago – they’re both takes on the same general trend. This one is made from Indian glass beads wire-wrapped to a chain.

How to make wrapped leather bracelets « Rings and Things Triple-wrap leather bracelet with blue tigereye beads Let me begin by stating the obvious – this style of wrapped leather bracelet is EVERYWHERE this season. Everywhere! Even my athletic clothing catalogs – which only have maybe three pieces of jewelry – are featuring this style. Why? Five different leather wrapped gemstone bracelets designs: green opal, mookaite, African turquoise, hematite and rhodonite The supply list is pretty short: 4-6mm round beads We used gemstone beads, but glass, crystal beads or pearls would also be lovely. Wrapped bracelet made with green opal gemstone beads and natural Greek leather. The technique: Choose your bracelet length and cut your leather. If your button has a small loop, you might need to miter (angle) the leather end and pull it through with pliers. Other design options: Have fun creating your own wrapped bracelets! Need supplies? Other how-to’s: Q: “How do you start a new thread in the middle of the bracelet?”
