This is suitable for Beginners
Follow step-by-step instructions
Pass the cord through the hole in the button so that you end up with two cords of equal length.
Tie a knot in the cord close to the button to secure it.
Thread a bead onto one cord and then a jump ring onto both cords.
Now thread a bead onto the other length of cord and then a jump ring over both pieces of cord.
Continue to thread the beads onto alternate cords with jump rings in between. Remember that the jump rings are threaded onto both pieces of cord.
Continue until you have a length long enough for a bracelet. You can measure it around your wrist for size.
Tie a knot close to the last bead using both lengths of cord. Tie a second knot to create a loop to fit over your button.
Thread the extra beads onto the tails of the cord and knot to secure them and finish by trimming.
