Summer Daydream Bracelet

Project details:

in favorites

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.

Supplies you’ll need:

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.

$10 or less

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.

See Tip: Tying the Sliding Square Knot

Step 4

Just add embellishments to your bracelet tails.
