  1. @Fantamonkey The thickness of the waxed linen cord is 1mm cord. You can get the cord on Beadaholique's website. The links for the supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath the video.

  2. Andrea thank you so much your tutorials are one of my favourites here on Youtube…I admire that you take the time patience to literally take us step by step through projects, so that anyone new to crafting can follow your instructions …my daughter and I made a few of these bracelets as gifts they are truly lovely …thank you for sharing your skills with us …Stay blessed

  3. I was wondering, does the Beadaholique website ship to places outside the U.S? because I cannot find this waxed linen anywhere. (I live in New Zealand)

  4. Andrea was showing one way to do it. You can definitely also do it the way you have described, whichever you prefer.

  5. omg i love this. and i had the darndest time with this cotton cording (couldn't find the waxed linen cord) so i wisened up and bee waxed my own. came out awesome!

  6. Great bracelet, I would suggest a Knotty board to make this so so so much easier.
    I too love the waxed linen. It comes in every color you can imagine too! Not great when it gets wet though!!

  7. Ive heard that after the bracelet is complete it can be heated to give it a smoother finish, have you heard of this and if so, how do you heat it? thanks

  8. I haven't heard of doing this, no. Unfortunately, as I haven't tried anything like this, I can't give any advice on how to do it.

  9. do you have any videos showing how to add a bead to the center of a bracelet like this with the smaller beads on each side?

  10. If you are looking to add beads to both the center and the outside, watch this video and the version (How to Make a Knotted Waxed Linen Wrap Bracelet (Beads on the Inside)) for beads on the inside. Then you would just combine the two techniques to add beads to both the center and the outside.

  11. Do you know where I can get the metal seed beads? They look great. The button is cool too. Do you know where that is from? Great video! Thanks

  12. You can get the supplies featured in our videos on Beadaholique . com's website. The links for the supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath this video.

  13. Very pretty. I hope you do more bracelets for summer they are so cute I like the wrap around so hoping that you do more. I  will be looking at your store for buttons n things. Thank you Andrea.

  14. There are several things that would make this bracelet much easier:

    Instead of cuttings two separate strands for the center cords, cut one that's twice the length then fold it in half. Use the folded end for the loop that closes the bracelet. Before doing any knotting, try the loop over the button to make a good fit. Then start the knotting just below that point.

    Instead of cutting two separate strands for the outside (knotting) cords, cut one that's twice the length then fold it in half. Put this center point under the two center cords and tie a single knot around the center cords. If you're following my suggestion above, do this right under the loop. Then start the square knotting.

    In the video, talking about S's and reverse S's was very confusing until I realized it was just square knots, and I've been doing macrame for over 40 years! When I taught macrame, I was surprised at the number of people who couldn't keep straight which part of the square knot to do next — right over left or left over right. But everyone's mind works differently. So I would wrap a small piece of masking tape onto the end of only one of the knotting cords. Then they had to remember only one thing every time — Tape on Top. So easy to remember and so easy to say. Many people never realize that the top cord always stays on top and the bottom cord always stays on the bottom for square knots.

    Hope these ideas help. Happy beading!
