LOVE Color Block Bracelet Tutorial

It's time to show you my Ornamentea.com designer project for February! Click the link to go to the tutorial for my LOVE Color Block Bracelets. These are cute and right on trend. This little bracelet would be perfect any time of year. Color blocking is still a hot trend. I love creating segments of color with wraps of waxed linen cord, like this. I also can't get enough of these faceted cube beads. LOVE!

Ingredients

- 1 Love Charm
- 23 filed cube beads
- 1 9mm lobster clasp
- 1 5mm jump ring
- 1 2" head pin
- 1" of extender chain
- 24" of Irish waxed linen (I used Cobalt)
- 2 18" pieces of Irish waxed linen cord (I used Garnet and Petunia)

Tools

- Scissors
- Ruler
- Chain nose pliers
- Round nose pliers

1. String the lobster clasp to the center of the 24" piece of waxed linen cord. Use both cords to form an overhand knot after the clasp as shown.

 2. Use both cords to form an overhand knot 2" from the previous knot. Use both cords to string 22 filed cubes. Attach the jump ring to the LOVE charm. Close the jump ring and string it over the filed cubes. Use both cords to form an overhand knot after the cubes as shown.

 3. Use both cords to string the extender chain. Use both cords to form a slip knot 2" from the previous knot as shown. Trim to 1/4".

 4. Use one 18" piece of linen cord to form a square knot at one end of the bracelet as shown. Wrap the linen cord around the base of the bracelet until you reach the knot. Use the cord to form an overhand knot around the bracelet. Form another overhand knot against the last knot as shown. Trim to 1/4".
5. Repeat step 4 for the other side of the bracelet.

 6. Use 1 headpin to string 1 filed cube; form a wrapped loop that attaches to the end of the extender chain as shown.
