Red Earth Bracelet


About this design:

The small radiant focals make the perfect centerpiece for a bracelet. I love stacking my bracelets and already have a bunch in mind to wear with this one :) The Red Earth small radiant focal has such an earthy vibe, that pairing it with a waxed linen and African brass beads seemed very natural.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
The best way to start is by cutting 2 18" lengths of waxed linen. String one piece through one end of the radiant focal and the other piece through the other end, doubling over. Then bring your end together at each side and string on your brass beads until the fit is right. Once you have completed stringing on your beads knot the ends. Use a larger bead as your sliding clasp, though not so large that it doesn't stay in place when you need it to. I then finished by placing individual knots on each cord at approximately 3" down.
