Keeping up with the whole nautical theme, I found these bracelets online and fell in love with them…not wanting to shelling out that kind of money for some rope, I decided to try my hand at “jewelry” making.
So here is my attempt at creating a nautical inpsired sailor bracelet!
about 24″ of rope in any color that you like,
I stuck with the navy and cream
Clasps of your choice
create a loop with the rope and with the longer end cross it up and through the loop that was just made
form a figure 8 with the rope
With the longer end of the rope, thread that through to the right of the figure 8
at the first/bottom loop
Repeat that through the top loop of the figure 8 and gently pull through
Pull the rope at both ends and position the braid how you see fit
some distractions may occur, so take pictures if you feel it’s appropriate..or even if they’re not
Glue one end of the bracelet with the two ropes into one of the clasps, and let it dry
Do so with the other side
close the clasps tightly with the pliers
Put on a jump ring on each end at the clasp and then at the closure you selected
Since Step 6 distracted me SO much I don’t have pictures of steps 7, 8, and 9….
Now, VOILA!! A fun little bracelet to prepare for your days of living on a yacht or a lighthouse
