9. Beaded Bracelet
Beads and bracelets are the perfect combination; both words go along with each other very well, both highlighting the role of the other.
To make these easy beaded bracelets you will need waxed linen cord, seed beads and buttons. Cut the wax linen cord up to the desired length. Fold the linen cord such that you make two parallel hoops. Form a loop with the cord and cut the extra fourth strand. Now start braiding. Stop braiding after a few centimeters and start braiding in the beads one by one. Finish adding beads when you have the desired length. Add in a button when you are satisfied with your bracelet and form a knot. Secure the knot by making it double.
Make one of each color and stack them together, so that you will always have one that correctly matches your outfit.
8. Woven Bracelet
Chain bracelets are fun and easy to make. They are fun because they are effortless and require very little time.
Start by cutting your chain to the size of your wrist. Next you have the choice of either taking yarn/thread of only one color or of multiple colors. Start by making a secure knot on the side of the chain where you plan on starting your bracelet. You will have two portions of yarn/thread; start by moving one thread of the other and then under the chain. Use this over and under motion to stitch the two portions to the chain. When you are finished, tie another secure knot and cut off the loose thread. Attach jump rings to both ends and a finding to only one end.
You’re woven bracelet is ready!
7. Gold Tube Bracelets
Gold tube bracelets are quick and easy because they require only two things: a Chinese knotting cord and a curved gold tube bead.
Cut the knotting cord into 2 pieces, each piece must be of 12 inches. Thread in the gold tube into one of the pieces and knot the end of the cord. Now all you have left is to make the sliding closure. To make the sliding closure you will need an additional thread. Arrange both ends of the cord (with the gold tube) in a parallel but opposite direction. Take the remaining cord and place it overlapping the two ends of the first cord. Now start making knots. To make a knot you will bring the bottom cord over the top cord.
Keep making knots and secure them in place by sewing the backside of the knots together. Your bracelet is ready.

When you are finished with adding your nuts, braid a little further and secure the three threads with another knot.
