Here’s how to make a very simple hand-made bracelet.
You need 5 cords of fabric for this bracelet. Basically, you line them all up, tie a knot in one end, and braid them over each other in a circular braid pattern until you have the length of bracelet you want. Then you can braid the ends together. If you can’t braid the ends together, you might consider just tying them together because the next step will cover it up: wind some (in this example, metallic) thread around the bracelet in one section.
