Put on the spacer bead and/orthe bead with an eye for pendants, or whatever you would like, before you glue on the other end.

First, take a nice piece of Russian soutache and lay it flat on a table. You can hold it straight by placing something heavy at the ends.

Add a fine strip of glue in the middle of the cord. Do not use too much glue, only enough to attach the chain to the cord.
Start at one end and move slowly, so that you are sure that it is straight.
Let it dry.

Measure of how long your bracelet should be, and cut the cord and chain with a good sharp nipper or a pair of sharp scissors.

Apply glue to the clasp-parts of the magnetic clasp and put them on as described above in “Bracelets with charms.”


Bangles or Turk’s head-knot bracelets of Russian soutache.
The Russian soutache is also suitable for making these delicate bangles using the Turk’s head knot.
For a normal-size bracelet,  3 meter of cord is required. To close the ends together, a little bit of jewelry glue  is required. The bracelet is made so that it can expand, making it easy to take on and off, therefore you do not need a clasp.
