  • Hi everyone, I have another bracelet tutorial for you today and I just love how quick and

  • simple this one is to make and on top of this it looks absolutely adorable.

  • So basically you just need to make simple bracelets like these ones and then you layer

  • them with different colors of string.

  • I really hope you like it and let's get started.

  • All you need to make these lovely bracelets are golden tubes some golden beads and different

  • colors of knotting cord.

  • For the tools you need an embroidery needle and scissors.

  • Jewelry making always recalls so many beautiful memories of my childhood.

  • As kids we were playing with my girlfriends outside all summers, and one of our favorite

  • things to do was making bracelets from flowers and willow trees.

  • Maybe that's why bracelet making is very close to my heart and walking into a craft store

  • still feels like being a child in a candy shop.

  • To begin, cut about 10 inches or 30 centimeters of string.

  • Take a golden tube and thread it onto a string.

  • If you don't have the golden tubes you can use any other beads that have a hole and can

  • be thread onto the cord!

  • Place the bracelet on the surface and cross the ends like so.

  • Now take another 10 inches of the knotting cord and we are going to make a simple sliding

  • closure.

  • Center the string over the two overlapping ends of the bracelet.

  • Take the left end of the string, go under the middle strands and over the right end

  • of the string.

  • See here I went under and here over.

  • Now take the left end of the string go over the middle strands and through the loop.

  • Pull both ends to tighten the knot.

  • Since I started on the left before, I need to start on the right this time.

  • Go under the middle strands and over the strand on the left.

  • With the left end of the string go over the middle strings and into the loop.

  • Pull both ends to tighten the knot.

  • Now start on the left again.

  • Go under the middle strings and over the right one.

  • With the right string, go through the loop and tighten.

  • For the next knot start on the right, go under the two center stands and over the left one.

  • With the left string go through the loop and tighten the knot.

  • Then just repeat this a few times, switching the starting side between left and right.

  • This is a basic square knotting technique and I like to use it for my sliding closures

  • because it's simple, quick yet very neat in the end.

  • This way the bracelet will be adjustable in size and we will easily be able to put it

  • on and take it off the wrist without damaging it.

  • Once your closure is about half an inch long, thread one of the string ends onto an embroidery

  • needle.

  • Sew up the center of three knots along the backside of the closure.

  • Do the same with the other end of the string.

  • Sometimes it's a bit difficult to sew through the tight knots so pliers can come handy if

  • you're struggling when pulling the needle.

  • Trim away the excess cord and melt the tips with the lighter for the extra hold.

  • To finish off you can just make a simple knot on each end of the bracelet's string or you

  • can thread on two beads first.

  • I decided to go for the beads and once they're on, I am just making a final knot on each

  • side of the bracelet.

  • Cut away the excess cord and melt the tips with a lighter.

  • It doesn't take more than 15 minutes to make this adorable bracelet.

  • I made six of them using different colors of string.

  • I think bracelets make such a perfect gift for your friends or yourself.

  • Taking time to make a present is much more valuable than buying something in a shop and

  • everyone appreciates cute little homemade gifts.

  • These bracelets look fantastic layered with other bracelets as well.

  • See how cute they look together with my heart bracelets which I made in my previous bracelet

  • tutorial!

  • So that's how easy this was.

  • Let me know if you try to make them yourself.

  • A few days ago I realized that my channel here on YouTube has hit ten thousand subscribers

  • so thank you so much for this.

  • Thank you so much for the amazing support and all the beautiful comments.

  • They really motivate me to film more videos for you guys.

  • So keep doing this.

  • I love you all so much and I'll see you very soon!
