I like this easy approach with large holed discs in bracelet designs. The bracelet tutorial by Alisha over on Instructables uses an antique coin. But you could easily substitute with small donuts or even some of your own resin clay or polymer clay donuts. My first inclination with this kind of style is to use cord ends and an ordinary clasp. But what this instructor does is to make a simple sliding knot closure by treating both cords on each side as one.
One tip is to leave a bit of a tail. Do not cut the cord ends too close. This way, the wearer has something to grasp when pulling on the piece to close or open the bracelet.
Personally, I would size the bracelet for a bangle and then not bother to adjust it in the future! This will work so long as the cord material is not too slippery.
