Simple Sliding Knot Bracelet with an Antique African Coin
This bracelet is totally adjustable and can fit just about every wrist, depending on how much cord or string you use.
Step 1: Materials Used
One Yard of Leather Cord
One Antique African Coin
Step 2: Step One
Okay, now that you have all the goods, you want to take your yard of string or cord and fold it right in half and cut it.
Take one strand of your cut cord and fold it in half again, making a simple bend at the top ( Important: do not cut this half)
Take the bend you just made and pass it through the center of the coin, like zis--
Step 3: Step Two
Loop the dangling strands through the big loop you just created by bending it in half
Step 4: Step Three
Once one side is snug and fit into place, take the second strand and do the same thing on the opposite side of the coin.
It should look something like this!
Step 5: Step Four
to create the sliding knot element of this sliding knot bracelet.
This part was tricky to explain in photographs so I just drew it out...
Basically, take both strands of one side and wrap it around the other strands of the other side at least 3 times
Step 6: Step Five
Now, take the end of the two strands of one side that is wrapped around and lead it through that tunnel
Step 7: Step Six
Now pull it tight, but again, don't use your lion strength, we don't want to break the cord or we'll have to start all over again.
Do it again on the other side and it will look something like this- (about 4 strands in a cute little knot)
Step 8: Finally
If it does, congratulations it is complete!
Now go give it to someone you have a crush on cause it's
totally gender neutral and anyone who is anyone would want to wear something you made ;D
