DIY Netted Stone Friendship Bracelets


As you probably realised due to my past bracelet projects, I love making all kinds of friendship bracelets, too bad I don't feel very comfortable wearing stuff around my wrists during winter, it just ends up getting stuck on the jacket's sleeves, especially if it is a big or more chunky bracelet. But still I really wanted to try the netted rock technique, and I can still wear it more when the weather gets warmer.





You will need:
Clipboard or something to hold the cords;
Waxed cotton cord;
Small Stones, I used those colorful ones for fish tanks;
Scissors;
Button;


Cut 2 strands with about 1 meter of cord and fold it in half.
Cut another strand with 2 meters, this is the one we will be using to wrap the whole bracelet, and fold it along with the other two, leaving the excess cord all to one side.
Knot the cords together at the middle, leaving a loop big enough to fit the button through.


Clip the cords in place, grab the longer cord and wrap it around the others.
Once the bracelet reaches almost half the size of your wrist, secure the cord, by tying it around.


To make the net, divide the cords in pairs and make a knot on each of the two, close to the top.


Now separate the cords again, take one cord from one knot, another cord from the other and tie those two together.
Do the same thing again on the second pair of cords, then take the last two and tie those together as well.


Do another row of knots with the same technique, and try it to see if your stone fits, mine was not that big, so the 3 rows were enough, but just make another row or two if you have a bigger stone.

Find the longer cord again, use it to secure the strands together, and wrap it around until the length on this side of the bracelet matches the other.


Once that is enough, tie the cord around and add the button.
Cut the excess cord and your bracelet is ready!
