Today Katrin from katrinshine will show how to make a wonderful knotted bracelet nautical style. She choose a pale pink color to make hers but you can always make it in traditional white, red and blue nautical colors.
Materials you need:
- cord about 0.5-0.7m/20-30"
- cord ends
- 2 jump rings 5mm/0.2" diamete
- lobster clasp
- if it's possible, the chain-extension
So, lets begin. Take the cord and divide it into two halves. Then, from one half make out the knot shown in the figure below.Pass the second cord besides the first one. Here's what you should have.
Tighten the knot.
Measure your wrist. Cut out this length from the the cord with knot wrapping the place before with scotch tape. You can put a drop of glue. Do not be afraid that the bracelet will be small - we are still going to add the lobster clasp and chain extention, at the end the length increases.
Attach cord ends to both ends of the bracelet.
At one end attach the lobster clasp, at another end - the chain-extension.
Your bracelet is ready! Happy crafting!
