I am not a big DIYer… but when it comes to jewelry I sometimes make an exception.  I used to be big into making my own jewelry in high school, but once I started college, I outgrew the hobby.  So when I found my old jewelry/beading containers a couple weeks ago, I was excited to get back in the jewelry making game!  I made a delicate beaded ombre necklace to match the Maya Brenner necklace my hubby got me with my new initials awhile back.  Since then, I’ve caught the bug!  I came across a gorgeous pendant at the bead store for and you can only imagine my surprise when I was surfing the Calypso St. Barth summer sale and saw this bracelet available for $70!

Materials: Center Bead, Hemp Cord

Step 1: Thread the cord through the bead.

Step 2: Take the right side string (we’ll call it String 1)  and place it under the left side (we’ll call this String 2) – make a backwards 4.

Step 3: Take the end of the String 1 and loop it through the hole you’ve made.

Step 4: Tighten the string to create a knot.

Step 5: Repeat Steps 1-4 until bracelet is the desired length.

Step 6: Repeat on both sides to complete your bracelet.

Enjoy the perfect summer accessory and the fact you’ll be saving $65!
