One Button Rope Bracelet Tutorial

By on Saturday, April 20, 2013 3 Comments

Rope jewelry is a popular trend.  So I was especially taken with George's one button rope bracelet tutorial over on his What Knot blog because it is an innovative approach. 


What he does is basically make a rope fabric varying the infilled colors for color. He shares his tips including how to use a PVC coupling from the hardware store as a mold (note to self : use it as a wire work bracelet mandrel).

The carefully layered rope lengths are sewn together.  George also includes instructions on how to tighten these cross threads carefully while still maintaining a flat bracelet.  Who knew cable ties would come in handy for jewelry making?

  1. Thanks Pearl, yes the hardware store is a great source of materials for all kinds of craft work. Here in Minneapolis we have a lot of well stocked neighborhood emporiums that have survived the arrival of the "big box" retailers. You can find many of the materials needed for this project in these places.
