Lashed Wrap Bracelet with Gemstone Beads, Antiqued Brass-Finished "Pewter" Button and Swarovski Crystal

STEP 1
Using scissors cut the following:
  • One 80-inch length of brown 2mm leather cord
  • One 6-foot length of Purely Silk™ chestnut size F thread
  • Two 12-inch lengths of dark brown 1mm imitation silk cord
Note: It may be necessary to knot/tie off your thread and start with a fresh length during this process.
STEP 2
Create a Whipping Knot Double the length of leather cord in half, then double the 6-foot length of thread. Place the doubled center of the thread approximately 20mm down from the center of the leather cord laying in the same direction. Create a whipping knot gathering the strands using one 12-inch length of imitation silk cord. Secure the knot with G-S Hypo cement.
STEP 3
Secure the Loop and Knot to a Sketch Board Secure the loop and knot to a sketch board.

Thread a needle onto the each end of of the 6-foot length of thread.
STEP 4
Passing the Needle Through Bead Separate the strands of leather cord and bring each strand of thread around the outside of its corresponding strand of cord. Pass the needle on each side through the hole on one Crazy Horse™ stone 6mm round in the opposite direction then pull the threads tight.

Wrap the two strands of thread around the outside of their new corresponding leather cord then pass the needles back through the hole a second time creating a double lash.

Wrap the strands of thread around the outside of their new corresponding leather cord strands once more and pass the needles through the hole on one Swarovski crystal luminous green 6mm globe.
STEP 5
Continue to Double Lash Beads Continue to double lash the following:
  • One green serpentine 6mm round
  • One Russian serpentine 6mm round
  • One peridot new ''jade'' 6mm round
  • Repeat this sequence to lash a total of twenty-four sets
    • One Crazy Horse stone 6mm round
    • One Swarovski crystal luminous green 6mm globe
    • One green serpentine 6mm round
    • One Russian serpentine 6mm round
    • One peridot new ''jade'' 6mm round
  • One Crazy Horse stone 6mm round
  • One Swarovski crystal luminous green 6mm globe
  • One green serpentine 6mm round
STEP 6
String Button onto Leather Cord String onto one end of the leather cord one antiqued brass-finished 18mm button. String an adjacent hole onto the second strand of leather cord. Position the button approximately 1 inch from the last lashed round.

Pass the cords down through the second set of holes on the opposite side.
STEP 7
Create Whipping Knot Gather the ends of the leather cord and the 6-foot length of thread, and create a whipping knot using the second 12-inch length of imitation silk cord in the 1-inch gap. Secure the knot with G-S Hypo cement.
