Day Sixteen – Braided Hex Nut Bracelet. You have to love turning hardware supplies into jewelry. Really pretty jewelry.
The materials: 18 small brass hex nuts and twine, yarn, leather, cord, or thread of your choice. I used embroidery thread, but I’d like to pick up some twine or leather cord and make another bracelet. I love the way the bracelet looks with leather.
The steps to this bracelet are simple.
Step One: Cut 3 strands of your string (of choice) 1 yard long each.
Step Two: Tie the end of your strands together and braid them together about an inch to an inch and a half.
Step Three: Braid your hex nuts in alternately one after the other through the outside strands.
Step Four: Braid to desired length and tie off.
You can also make this gorgeous bracelet with hex nuts.
