I'm married to an engineer (check him out http://www.instructables.com/member/vreinkymov/) , so all sorts of washers and hex nuts are always laying about the house from his various projects.

I've always thought hex nuts were pretty and decided to make a simple braided bracelet with them. I thought I was so clever until I searched the internet and found that everyone and their mother had a tutorial on it.

Oh well, here it goes!

Step 1: Materials

For this project you'll need:

Cord (color and thickness are up to you, just make sure it's thin enough to fit through the nut)
Hex nuts (as many or as few as you like, I used 12)

This project will take about 15 minutes and will cost about $5 to make.

You will need to know how to braid in order to follow this tutorial.
Does it make a lot of noise ?
