Step 1: Create Leather Loop and Lash the Waxed Linen
Fold the length of leather cording in half to form a loop as shown. Check the loop for fit around your bead. Lash the waxed linen around the leather cording at the base of the loop by wrapping it tightly. Tuck the short end of the waxed linen under your lashing to secure the linen.
Step 2: Lash Linen Around Ball Chain Until at the End of the Leather
Place the strand of ball chain along the leather cording with the end of the ball chain even with the last lash. Continue lashing the linen around the leather and the ball chain until you reach the end of the ball chain.
Step 3: Add Elaine Ray Bead to Leather and Knot to Finish
When you have reached the end of the ball chain lash the linen cording around both leather strands 2-3 more times. Separate the leather strands and feed one strand through the center of the Pop Dot bead. Wrap the linen cording around the other strand of leather. Bring both strands of leather together and tie a knot in the two strands as shown. Check bracelet fit and adjust accordingly. Pull knot tightly and trim excess leather and linen.
