I love the vibrant pink and denim for summer. The mother of pearl heishi beads has a beautiful iridescent shine. This is a easy design that can be personalized with your favorite colors.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • pink mother of pearl heist beads
  • 3mm denim leather cord
  • mother of pearl mosaic button
  • Linhasita cord in Salmon and Fresh Mint

Recommended tools: scissors and lighter

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Cut 3' of cord. Slide the cord through the button loop. Cut 2 4' pieces of Linhasita cord, one in each color.

Step

Step 2

Place 5" of the Linhasita just under the button on the leather cord and tie it on. Wrap the cord around several times and knot. The cord should be wrapped about a 1/2" down from the loop.

Step 3

Cut off two of the tails on one side and burn the knot to secure it. Cut the working Linhasita tails at an angle so they fit through the bead holes.

Step

Step 4

Clamp the cord down to something so it doesn't move. The Step 4 image is just showing you how to do a square knot. Start doing a square knot using the two Linhasita cord tails as shown. Be sure to switch cord colors each square knot so the colors will alternate on the bracelet. See Step five for how to add beads.

See Tip: Tying the Square Knot

Step

Step 5

Slide a bead on each tail when you are about to do a square knot. Then another square knot after the bead. Then slide two more beads on and continue.

Step

Step 6

When you have enough beads on leave about another 1/2" to wrap the cord around and knot. The same as you did in Step 2. Burn the knot to secure it.

Step

Step 7

Take the leather cord ends and pace them around the button to see how big of a loop you need. Tie on Linhasita cord just after the button on the cord and wrap it around several times. Trim the cord ends and burn the knot. Trim off extra leather cord.
