These bracelets are great since they look like bangles but are much more comfortable. Because it is so long, it has a certain amount of flexibility to be worn as a necklace or anklet as well. It was very simple to make, and mine cost less than $15 in supplies and only took a few hours. The color combinations are endless - have fun with it!
Step 1: Supplies
• Leather cord (or any sturdy, thin cord): First figure out how many wraps you want to make. Measure that distance, double it, and add around 4' extra for the loops at the end. I found that four wraps on my wrist perfectly matched three wraps on my ankle, whereas five wraps on my wrist didn't work as an anklet. I needed roughly 2 yards.
• Beads: I used 4mm faceted czech glass beads. This online vendor seems to have a good selection, but any bead store would have these, and of course any type of bead will work! Similar bracelets I've seen use smaller beads than this, closer to 3mm.
• Nylon thread
• Beading needle: traditional or a separated eye style depending on the thickness of your nylon thread and size of beads.
• Button: the kind with a loop in back vs holes works best.
