Step 1: What You Need.
-one 3 yard peice of leather cordage: 1.99$
-some buttons: 2.99$
-a knife or scissors
One chain can make 5 or more bracelets, so buy as much leather cordage as you think you'll use!
Step 2: Beginning
Picture 1- Take one of the cordage peices and thread it through your button making sure the button is at the halfway point.
Picture 2/3- Take the other peice of courage and set the halfway spot on the button (an extra finger would help here). Then, take the cordage in the button and do the first step of a granny knot (aka tying your shoe).
Picture 4- Tie all for peices of leather in an overhand knot, make sure the knot is as close to the button as possible without being directly under it.
Step 3: Begin the Weave
Picture 3- Thread a peice if chain through the top chords, then bring the bottom chords back out of it.
Step 4: Section 1
Picture 3- add one peice of vertical chain (this helps to make it more flexible with the crosses). Then, add another cross plus a vertical peice.
Picture 4- (optional) end the section with one if the bearings, threading it the same way as the beginning of the bracelet. You're done with the first section!
Step 5: Section 2+3
Step 6: Finish It Off!
Last, cut the excess chord off, leaving an inch or so of separate lengths so it doesn't look dull (now is the time to add beads if you want!).
Extra step not used- add some leather cement or superglue to the final knot so the overhand loop can never be pulled out if you catch your bracelet on a fence or the such
