Instructions

1. String 1 ceramic nugget onto the leather cording so that it is about halfway down the cord. Tie an overhand knot and slide it toward the nugget so that it holds the nugget in place. 

2. Remove the silk cording with needle form its card and stretch it by going down the length with your hands and pulling each section so that it removes the kinks. 

3. Tape the knot to your work surface and with the silk cord, tie a slip knot at the end around the leather cord to hold the silk cord in place and place a drop of glue to secure. Wrap a figure-8 around the two leather cords with the silk cord three or four times. 

4. Pull the silk cord under, around, and over one side of the leather cord. Pull taught and string a hematine faceted round. Wrap the silk cord under, around and over the other leather cord and pass back through the bead. 

5. Repeat step 4 with remaining beads in the following order: 3 lapis rounds, 3 imperial jasper rounds, 5 light blue dyed dolomite rounds, 3 imperial jasper rounds, 3 lapis rounds, and 1 hematine faceted round. 

6. Wrap the silk around the two leather cords in a figure-8 fashion three or four times at this end of the bracelet. Knot the silk cord and trim excess. Place a drop of glue on the knot.

7. Holding the two leather cords as one, make an overhand knot as close to the last bead as possible. Make a second knot far enough from the first knot to accommodate the ceramic nugget bead. Make a third knot far enough from the second knot to accommodate the ceramic bead if you want the bracelet to be adjustable. Trim excess leather.
