DIY: Braided Bracelet

Tie all the chords and copper wire in a knot. Braid them together and stop with about 1/3 of the cord left. (Because there are 4 strands, connect the copper wire to one of the chords, and then braid normally) 

 String One of the beads on to all the strands.

String the gem bead on to the copper wire, then string another bead on to all the strands.

 Finish braiding the strands, then using the pliers, put one of the clasps on. Once the clasp is secure, untie the knot, and cut all the strands.

On the other side of the bracelet, use the pliers again to put a clasp on. Cut the string down. 

Wrap the bracelet around your wrist and enjoy!
