Make your own adjustable gold tube bracelet!

I was browsing the internet and i stumbled upon this great DIY for a studded bracelet and many more different options such as bead bracelets, ankle bracelets,wrap bracelet, woven chain bracelet, etc! it doesn't get any easier then this, you can find the studs and the yarn at your local Michaels i even found some on Ebay! can't wait to try this.. here are a few pictures on how to make a adjustable gold tube bracelet i found on blog! check them out!

For single, adjustable gold tube bracelets, you’ll need:

  • a 2mm x 38mm curved noodle tube bead
  • 2 feet of 1mm chinese knoting cord
  • an embroidery needle
  • 2 spacer beads

and now, all that’s left is the sliding closure!  fold the 2nd strand over the overlapping ends and start tying square knots. Fold the top cord over the bottom cord . .

. . . and bring the top cord under both the bottom and middle overlapping strands through the loop, into a knot.

Repeat the same step on the right side.

Continue to make 5-6 more knots

To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 2-3 knots along the backside. Pliers will help pull the needle through the tight knots.

Trim away any excess cord.

Thread two gold spacer beads onto each cord and tie the tips into a knot. Trim.

Your adjustable & colorful bracelets are done!
