About: I am a teacher outside of Boston and I love making cool stuff! Any prizes I'm lucky enough to win will go directly to my classroom (when appropriate) where I teach 6-12th grade English, Social Studies, and S...

Step 1: BoM

Leather cord (1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm. Amount depends on your wrist size)

Beads (at least 1 bead has to be large enough to accommodate both cords)

Charms

Step 2: Measure

The average female bracelet size is between 6-7". My wrist is 6.5" wrapped snug. I want to accommodate for knots, etc. so I measured out a couple extra inches and cut about a 12" cord.

Step 3: String

String the bracelet with the beads you want and then move them to the center of the bracelet.

Tie knots on both sides of the beads.

Step 4: Knots

Slide (at least) one more bead onto one end of the bracelet and then tie a knot at the end of the cord. The bead should be large enough to accommodate both cord ends.

Slide the other cord through the bead and tie another knot. These ends are how you will loosen or tighten your bracelet!

Step 5: Wear!

Try out your bracelet and if you feel the ends are too long, undo the knots tie them further up the bracelet. Cut off the excess.
