This stack has soft, dreamy colors that really pop off the pacific blue leather cord. The asymmetrical style of the main 3 strand bracelet,really shows off this rustic blue leather cord. A stack is a great way to display the Czech glass rocailles & oval mixes.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut 4 24" pieces of cord. Pair them up and fold the pairs in half. See the image to create a Josephine knot. My finished bracelet was 7.25" long before I wrap it around my wrist. If you wrist is a different size you may need to adjust the amount of cord.
Step 2:
Slide the beads on in the order shown.
Step 3:
Create a knot at each end.
Step 4:
Slide on the large hole flower bead over all for cord tails. Leave a 2-3 inch space and knot the end. Make sure it fits around your wrist before knotting. I knotted beads on at the end of each tail.
Step 5:
Slide one piece of cord up and over the button holes. Tie a knot with all the cord to secure the button. I added some glue for extra security.

For the elastic cord bracelet, string on the beads in the order shown and create a surgeon's knot to finish.

For the moonstone bracelet - Cut two 3.5" pieces of cord, slide the cord over the moonstone loops. Fold the cord over and use your wire to wrap tightly around the cord. Trim the excess wire. Do the same for the other side. Glue on your cord ends and attch jump rings and clasp.
