This beach-inspired bracelet (or anklet) can be made with any color cord, and features pearls & cowrie shell drops.

Supplies you’ll need:

See below for materials used.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1

Begin with 16" (or your desired length) of cord. Tie a double overhand knot so that there's 2-3" of cord left above the knot. Using a beading needle, string on a pearl and tie a double knot as close to the bead as possible. Continue until you've reached your desired length.

Step 2

Using a jump ring, attach a cowrie shell charm between the knot and the bead. Space out every two beads.

Step 3

Finish the bracelet with a sliding square knot closure.
