Friendship Bracelet Kit Instructions

In your beading kit, we have included a wide array of beads to choose from. We wanted you to feel inspired from all the colours and shapes to choose what resonated with you most. There are plenty of beads to continue beading with more string and more pieces.

 

In your kit you will find:

- longer pieces of beading string for the actual bracelet
- shorter pieces of thicker string to make the knot closure
- a needle to finish off the knot closure, and string beads if needed
- a curated selection of gemstones, vintage pearls, and czech seed beads

 

For the start of your bracelet, put at knot about 3" away from the end and start your beading.

 

* BEAD BEAD BEAD * Work with what you feel drawn to. Test out different colour combinations. Take your time with it.

(At the bottom of the page, there are some daisy chain instructions if you'd like to give them a try)

 

Once you have enough beads on that your bracelet fits around your wrist how you'd like, tie a knot at the end of the beads. From here, we will create a sliding macrame closure to finish off the bracelet. (Instructions below)

  • Line up the ends of the bracelet parallel with each other, and wrap around the closure thread, centered to the two bracelet strings. Start to knot around them (a square macrame knot).

  • Pull the closure strings tight around the bracelet string. This is the start of the closure. Continue adding knots, 7-8 are great.

  • When all the knots are lined up, use your needle and thread both ends of the closure string. Pull them into the center of the clasp and clip them close to the end so they hide inside. From here, test out how much length you need for the bracelet to open and close around your wrist and cut the ends with enough space. You can add more beads onto the ends too, and knot!
