It's a bit difficult to write down how to create the bracelet step by step so just take a look at the pictures and I hope you'll be able to understand the procedure.
- approximately a 50cm long leather strap, mine was 2mm thick
- a button
- a needle
- some thread
- about 30 round beads (5mm)
- twice the amount of flat beads
Put the middle of the leather strap through the holes of the button and tie a knot.
Cut a long piece of thread, insert it in the needle. Secure the two ends below the knot.
The first three rows of beads won't be easy because you need to bring the leather straps into the right position. Now string the beads onto the needle and secure them to the leather strap by following an eight-shape. By this I mean your needle will be over the leather strap on one side, then you string the beads, the needle goes under the leather strap on the other side and around it, goes through the same row of beads again and under the leather strap on the first side. Now you start again.
When the bracelet is long enough to go around your wrist, secure the thread and tie a knot with the leather strap. Now leave enough space after that first knot to push the button in between the two straps and tie a second knot. To make the ends of the leather strap look cuter, tie a tiny knot on each end.
And this is about how it'll look in the end. I like it a lot and it's quick and easy so I might add some different colours or smaller ones to the collection soon ;-)
