Aloha Kai Knotted Wrap Bracelet

About this design:

Aloha Kai means love of the sea in the Hawaiian language. This bracelet emanates beachy vibes and takes me to my happy place. Wrap bracelets are great because you can also wear them as a necklace. I love all of the different shades of blue. 🐬

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 20lb natural hemp, 1 strand of each color of the Czech glass Trim-cut beads 2/0, 3 African reccled glass rounds, one sand dollar button and a tiny tassel or two. Feel free to embellish more.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Wrap the hemp around your wrist three times, then double it. Cut the hemp. Start stringing on your tri-cut beads in the order shown. Tie your knots as tight as you can up to the beads. Follow the tip below for knotting help.
Step 2:
Finish one end with a loop, and over-hand knot. Make sure the loop just fits over the button. On the other end I slide the hemp through the button loop twice then created a double knot. I used dots of glue to make sure my knots were secure. Now you're ready for the beach.

    Andrea, I think you did a great job showcasing the 2/0 Tri-cuts in this sea inspired piece. I also like how this can do double duty as a bracelet or necklace. I’ve not made a wrap bracelet–but I might just give this a try! :)
