You can make this simple knotted friendship bracelet using embroidery thread or twine.
This pretty bracelet is made by knotting the same-colored thread from the outside to the middle of the bracelet, creating a "V" shape with every thread instead of the traditional diagonal line.

Nina Designs asked four of their blogging design partners to participate in a little Design-Off, so-to-speak, using some of Nina’s beautiful sterling silver jewelry making components.
Ah – the good old days! The jewelry supply market has adjusted by providing cording, leather, alternative metals, silver plating and silver filled options widely available and attractive with so many stylish components to choose from.
I made sure to carry the silver ball theme from the fun circle wheels throughout the earrings so I grabbed my torch, took my fine silver wire and created some large balled head pins for the gemstones.
I knotted smaller 6mm, large hole pearls on brown C-lon bead cord along with faceted, sterling silver nuggets and faceted clear quartz.
My thoughts turned to: I hope there are high quality jewelry supply stores in Singapore! Wow, we would be so close to Thailand and hub of the silver trade! Oh man – so much closer to the gemstone manufacturing capital of the world.
I was looking for some half round beaded silver wire the other day because I want make some cool silver links with it and it’s not manufactured in brass, copper or silver filled! I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed the pricing.
Do you use wire? If so, how much do you use wire in your jewelry making? Would you consider yourself an aspiring wire worker, a beginner, fairly experienced or an expert?! Make sure your name and best email appears in your comment signature or in the comment you type on this post so we can contact the winner.
I was playing around with a double leather link and wire wrapped it with pearls and a few tiny bead caps as an accent.
For my second design, I created a pair of asymmetrical earrings strung on 26g sterling silver wire.
It amazes me that a hole can be drilled in such a small pearl! I also used peacock biwa pearls as the base of the triangular shape that have an amazing luster and color and a single large hole 6mm pearl that is the same pearl used in my wrap bracelet above.
I was feeling a little sassy the other day after looking at the numbers and dove into my silver stash with less caution and went for some nice thick 16 gauge wire and whipped up a little sterling silver bangle for myself.

If you are using elastic cord, tie the two ends of the bracelet together, creating enough stretch to enable you to slip the bracelet on and off your wrist.
Cross the two ends of cord over each other to form an "x" that will hold the third one in place.
Finish the bracelet by placing the final tab on the bottom side, sharp side up.

[…] I love these paper bingly bangles from Picklebums… folded paper bracelets, I know my kids would love to try.
We worked on our math skills counting by threes to rule up the paper and then I cut the strips with a paper cutter to make quick because you need a lot of strips! For each bracelet you’ll need between 16 and 22 strips, depending on how big a braclet you want to make.
Some of them the kids stick up on their bedroom wall and I thought I’d start using them as wrapping paper for gifts.
To make a folded paper bracelet you need to begin by cutting lots of strips of paper.

I love this idea! I’ve always made these with Starbursts wrappers but I don’t eat Starbursts anymore and I’ve been wondering what else I could use.
Just made one of these! I am from Australia but currently living in working in Uganda and was craving a crafty moment! The kids I live with here love it! I can see that I may be roped into teaching them how to make them also.

With the buckle arced inward like in part 2 of the diagram, thread the cords through the lower slit of the buckle.
 • When measuring, make sure to measure from the middle point of the male part of the buckle, to the end part of the female part of the buckle.
Pull the loose ends of the cord through the loop created on the other side and pull it all the way until the knot forms and locks onto the buckle.
• For the example in this diagram, my wrist measured in at 6.5”, so I’m measuring the cord to be 7.5” long.
Position your bracelet like shown in part one of the diagram.
Pull tight and create the knot like shown in part 6 of the diagram.
Part 3 of the diagram is an example of how the buckle should look from a top view.
Continue the left cord over the bracelet cords.
Take the right cord and continue threading it over the bracelet cords.

Do the next King Cobra stitch from the opposite side… Make a loop with the starter strand… Bring the second strand over the top of the first strand… Behind the completed Cobra stitch… and through the loop made out of the first strand! Continue doing the King Cobra stitch until you have a bit more than 1-inch completed, as shown here.
(Remember to continue using the SAME strand you started with when doing the regular Cobra stitch earlier) The second strand goes OVER the first strand… BEHIND the central strand (which in this case is the completed Cobra stitch)… and THROUGH the loop made with the first strand.
Turn the project around again, so the tongue (the red strands) are facing you once again… Do another round of King Cobra atop the first King Cobra by making a loop… Bringing the second strand over the first… …behind the existing King Cobra, and through the loop.
King Cobra is simply Cobra stitch that you do OVER THE TOP OF existing Cobra stitches, so we start by making a loop with our starter strand.
