Hey beautiful! In today’s tutorial I will show you how to make these quick and easy adjustable sliding knot bracelets. You will see me demonstrate a bracelet with a single strand of cord, and also a bracelet with double strands on either side. Everything you need to make these bracelets, and more, is available at Beebeecraft. Please see below for the full list of materials:
✔ 12 Pack Colorful Waxed Cotton Cord 1mm
✔ Assorted Gemstone Chip Beads – 18 Colors
✔ 4mm Stainless Steel Spacer Beads
✔ Jewelry Pliers & Wire Cutters
✔ Measuring Tape
✔ Lighter or cord burner
Optional: finish off the ends of the cords with additional spacer beads, as shown above, and use a lighter, or a cord burner, to melt the ends of the cord next to the knots. The bracelet pictured with the lime green cord is made with a single strand of 1mm cord, but I also show you how to make the red coral gemstone chip variety below, which contains double strands of cord on each side. Same knotting technique, just a bit bulkier with the two cords.
This adjustable sliding knot bracelet technique is so versatile! Simply use a connector, or even the decorative ring of a toggle clasp. Or, get fancy and string on two hole beads such as the Miyuki Tilas (as shown) onto two pieces of wire, which end in wrapped loops.
This bracelet technique is also a great way to use up small, left-over quantities of beads, or to use with gemstone chip beads, which can sometimes prove to be a challenge due to their irregular shape.
