Project Instructions

Step 1 Cut a 5" piece of leather cord. String the leather through a slider on the diagonal. Loosen the leather and slide it down the cuff slightly past the middle. Tighten the leather so that it runs across the inside of the leather cuff. String a 6mm wood bead and push it down next to the slider. Knot the leather above the bead. Tie on a second bead on the opposite side of the leather cuff. Trim the ends to slightly longer than ¼".

Step 2 Cut a 5" piece of leather cord. String three 6mm wood beads and slide them to the center of the cord. Pull the cord around the leather cuff so the half with the beads sits on the outside and the other half runs across the inside. Pull snug and tie a tight knot. Tie one stack of beads between each of the sliders, and then two on each side between the slider and the end of the cuff. Position the knots on alternating sides when adding the two rows between the slider and end. Trim the ends to slightly longer than ¼".

Size: Adjustable from 6.5-8 inches

Tips

Any bead will work for this design as long the leather cord can fit through the hole. Wood and ceramic beads tend to have the largest holes.
