Summer Daydream Bracelet

$10 or less

About this design:

Once the holidays are over, I automatically start thinking about summer vacation. There is always a desperate search for sun when you live in Michigan. I loved the new shell beads, so I decided to create a boho style bracelet with vibrant colors.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 8/0 frosted jet seed beads, Czech glass cubes in three colors (I used bright orange, lemon, and turquoise), waxed cord, 2 nautilus beads, 1 scallop bead, 1 conch shell charm, and 2 arca shell beads.


Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut about 8 inches of waxed linen, start sliding the beads on in the order you want. Tie a knot up to the beads at each end.
Step 2:
The cross the working ends over each other to start your sliding knot.
Step 3:
Cut a new piece of waxen linen about 4-5" to use for your sliding knot. Slide it under your working ends and start creating an over-hand knot. Watch our Tip & Technique for how to create a sliding knot.
Step 4:
Just add embellishments to your bracelet tails.
