Love-Me-Knot by Amanda Walker
*50cm (20in) black leather lacing
*1 x green luena glass bead
1. Form the lacing into a double circle. Wrap the right-hand end loosely over the doubled lacing three times, then thread the end back through the wrapped section. Pull the end tight to make a knot.
2. Thread a luena bead on the left-hand lacing end and make a second knot by wrapping the left-hand end loosely under the doubled lacing three times with the end pulled in the opposite direction approximately 10cm (4in) away from the first.
3. Trim away any excess lacing with the scissors. The knots are slip knots, making the bracelet easy to adjust to your fit wrist.
