Spring is approaching and with that in mind, we hope to inspire you with our new DIY collection of beautiful macramé bracelets, available in a variety of spring colors.

Smyks has acquired a whole new collection of connectors in both glass and sterling silver, and here, we will show you how you could apply them as decorative parts of your bracelets.

For this bracelet, you will need the following materials:

In this tutorial I have used this beading loom, but you can also braid your cords in another fashion if you want.

When bought, the beading loom from Smyks comes with an extensive user manual as well, to get you started.

 

You begin by picking up a cord, 40cm in length, and leading it through one of the eyes on the connector. Then you take another 40cm long cord and lead it through the connector’s other eye. Now, you have string up your cord as shown in the image below.

After you are done with the first step, take 1 piece of cord, 80cm, and begin braiding. You begin braiding from the connector and then outwards. When you done with one side, you will have to repeat the process on the other side, braiding a cord, 80cm, from the connector and outwards, until you reach the desired length in the braid. Remember, you have to have at least 20cm for the last step, which consists of braiding the “lock” of the bracelet. In the shown examples, the bracelet is 16,5cm (15cm bracelet + 1,5cm lock).

Being a nylon cord, the ends of the bracelets can be melted down with a lighter. When both sides of the bracelet are done, you make the lock. As a decorative feature in the ends, i have applied a crimp/bead and tied a knot.
