This super quick and easy bracelet of wooden beads has a great, earthy vibe.  Using leather cord to string the beads means you don’t even need any jewelry making tools!

I love the lightweight feel of these wooden beads; you hardly notice it on your wrist.  Sometimes in the summer, a bunch of heavy glass beads can be quite uncomfortable.

If you’ve never made your own jewelry before, this is a great project to start with.  Find just three focal beads and six accent beads that you love and have fun creating!

Materials:

  • three 1-inch wooden beads
  • six 3/8-inch wooden beads
  • 15 inches 1mm leather cord
  • one lobster clasp
  • 1½ inches chain
  • scissors

Instructions:

  1. Trim ends of leather cord at an angle. Slide on one 3/8-inch bead, one 1-inch bead, and another 3/8-inch bead. Make knots in cord at either side of 3/8-inch beads.
  2. Make another knot in cord ½ inch away from previous knot. Slide on one 3/8-inch bead, one 1-inch bead, and another 3/8-inch bead. Make another knot in cord after second 3/8-inch bead. Repeat to use final three beads.
  3. Tie lobster clasp to one side and chain to other side of remaining cord.  Make several knots along cord if desired. Trim ends at an angle.
