Rainbow Hematite Macrame Bracelet Instructions

Add a pop of colour to your bracelet stack! Look at the fabulous colours of our rainbow hematite... Once you have mastered how to make this bracelet, why not switch up the colour of S-Lon, and use different beads!

Materials Needed: 12 x 6mm Rainbow hematite beads () HEM6ROMX ) , 3m S-Lon Aqua ( SLC44-70), 6 x 2.4mm SIlver plated metal beads ( MTEA2431).

Tools Needed: A sharp pair of scissors ( SCIMX), optional - but makes macramé a lot easier - small macramé board ( MBDS), and 1 tapestry needle - the eye big enough to fit 0.5m S-Lon through it


Instructions

  1. Cut one 50cm length of cord, cut two 1m lengths of cord. Match the ends and tie an overhand knot 10cm from the end (photo 1)

  13. Create your sliding knot next. Cut a 20cm length of cord ready. Create a circle with your bracelet, and overlap your 6 loose strands, so they run parallel with each other, in opposite directions. Position neatly. These are your lazy cords. Pass your 20cm cord underneath (photo 12)

  15. Next, secure the two cords of your sliding knots. Thread one cord onto a tapestry needle, carefully thread back down the edge of the square knots you competed in the previous step (photo 14). Be careful not to catch the lazy cords with your needle while you are threading, otherwise your knot will not slide. Repeat with the other cord. Then trim
