Step-by-Step Instructions:

  Step 1:
2 of the bracelets are pretty straightforward to make.
The woven cotton cord bracelet just needs a couple ends either glued on with a clasp or you can wire wrap some ends. Add charms and you're done!
The leather bracelet with Saki bronze beads, macrame a spiral around the center of the bracelet using Sari ribbon. Then string on the bronze beads, knotting after 5 on each side. Continue adding 2+ beads depending on the size of your bracelet. Finish your bracelet using eithera sliding knot, button closure, or a large hole bead/slide for the 2 ends to pass through.
Step 2:
The 2 strand knotted Earth bracelet is also pretty quick but has a few steps that need more explanation. Begin by barely "melting" the edge and end of your waxed nylon.
Step 3:
String all the beads onto the waxed nylon using 2 lengths of 24". Knot between the beads, varying the amount grouped together. Repeat this for the 2 strand.
Step 4:
Combine the 2 strands at the end by creating several overhand knots.
Step 5:
At one end attach the button and the other end create an overhand loop knot for the button closure.
Step 6:
Add a tassel to the tails on the loop end of bracelet.

    Beautiful, I love the alternative look of a wrap bracelet. Bead stringing vs sewing, very nice.
