I've been obsessed with arm candies lately and decided to google tutorials and ideas. Credits for this tutorials goes to http://honestlywtf.com/diy/diy-beaded-bracelet/. Check out their site if you haven't already because there is a lot more tutorials.
My version of it is slightly different because I used jewelry clasps instead of a button.
So pretty much all you need is
- Jewelry clasps
Cut three 16" strings and tie them together in a knot on a jewelry loop like so.
Use a piece of tape and secure the loop to a flat surface
Insert a bead into one strand and start braiding. Each time you braid a string, insert a bead and weave the strings like pictured.
Continue braiding the beads into the cords until you are satisfied with the length and it fits your wrist to your liking.
Insert the strings into a jewelry clasp and tie a secure knot. If you want you can apply some glue to secure the knot and prevent the strings from coming apart.
The process takes approximately 15-20 minutes and you're done! Simple as that. I just love how simple this is and doesn't require a lot of material.
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Let me know what you think and if you have a DIY bracelet tutorial, please let me know so I can check it out.
