cutting your ball chain. I already have mine cut here. So the first length is your desired length of bracelets. So this is about eight inches. and then the second length you want to be three ball chain links less than the first one, Because it’s gonna sit
just right in-between the ball links like that. Okay, so you wanna take your, your cord and you wanna
find the center point. Then with that center point, I’m going to wrap it around
right after the second ball link and the first one. So the second one, the first link and after the first one on the second link there. Okay, you just wanna cross those, just hold them in place and you wanna start with this top or this one here. You’re just going to wrap down the chain in-between each ball chain link. Do that about an inch or so down. Then I hold that in place and I’m gonna take my other end and just zig zag that down. Okay, hold it in place
and you just keep going. Keep the tension nice and tight, just right in-between and again bring the other link down in
the opposite direction. So you can see it’s just
creating a little zigzag pattern and keeping those two
chain links right in place. So I’m gonna go ahead and do
this ’til I get to the end. And then I’ll be right back. Okay, so you can see here that I’ve wrapped the whole
length of my bracelet, and at the end just like at the beginning, you wanna end right where two ball lengths after the first length
and then just after the first one on the second length. Okay, then right from
here all you need to do is just tie a square knot. Okay, and pull tight. Trim the cord ends. And then dab a little bit of your Hypo Tube Cement
right on that knot. And you’re gonna let that dry. And at the end, you just wanna take your ball chain connector and put one end through, then secure it. You just wanna take the other end. And there you have it. You completed your Eastern

through the crimp bead. Then you wanna bring that up so it’s nice and close to the clasp, giving it still a little
bit of wiggle room. Then using your crimping
pliers in this back notch, place that crimp bead. Just squeeze that crimp bead and you wanna rotate it. I’m just gonna fold it over on itself. Okay, so you have one end attached and just trim your tail. Now you just wanna string your beads. So we start with a Lava Bead and then Bead Cap and then Gemstone Bead and then another Bead Cap.

they’re both just fanning out. Okay, so a Lava Bead and a Bead Cap, and then Gemstone Bead
and one more Bead Cap. Okay, so then you reached
the middle part here where you wanna add your Buddha charm. So to do that, you wanna take your jump ring, just make sure that’s opened up. One end towards you, one away. Then you just attach the top
loop of that Buddha charm and take your chain nose pliers and just bring those ends back together. Then you just wanna string through that jump ring. Okay, so now we’re just
gonna mirror that pattern. Bead Cap. Gemstone Bead. Lava Bead. Another Lotus Bead. Okay, so now we do another Lava. Bead Cap. Gemstone. Okay. Okay, just got a last Lava Bead. Okay, so there you have it all strung up. So now you just wanna
add your other crimp bead to the end of your beading wire. Then you wanna just string
it through the beading wire to the other end of your clasp and bring it back through that crimp bead and just bring it down the loop of the clasp until
the beads snug as well, leaving a little bit of wiggle room. Again, taking your crimping
pliers in the back notch, give it a good squeeze, crimp down and you just rotate it and the front notch fold it over on itself and just take your wire
cutters, cut off that tail. Okay, so now you have it all
strung up and at this point, you just need to put your
crimp bead covers on. To do that, just place the cover right over the crimp bead so the crimp bead just sits right inside. And then you just wanna gently squeeze those two ends of the
crimp bead cover together to create just a little silver bead. You just wanna repeat that on the other end. Okay, crimp bead just
sits right inside there. Gently just squeeze the crimp
bead cover ends together. Okay, and there you have your Eastern Path Buddha Charm Bracelet. To make the Eastern Path

You’re also going to need 10 inches of Stretch Magic Elastic Cord in Black, Hypo Tube Cement and scissors. You can find all of the
product links for these items in the description below. Okay, so to start this bracelet, just wanna take your 10
inch length of stretch cord and we’re just going to string
starting with a glass bead, then a seed bead
in-between each glass bead. Just wanna string until
you have seven glass beads and six seed beads. Okay, there’s six, one more seed bead. One more glass bead. Okay, now in the center point, you just wanna add your Lotus Bead. And then you just wanna
repeat this pattern on the other side. One glass bead. One seed bead. Okay, just a couple more. Just want the seven glass
beads and six seed beads on this end, too. Okay, and one more seed bead and your last glass bead. Now you just wanna bring
those ends together to create a square knot. Pull tight, push it right
up against the end beads. And we’re gonna do that a couple times to create a nice secure knot. Okay, one more time. Tight, you can see you have
your nice knot right there. And then I dab a little
bit of Hypo Tube Cement just right on the knot. Just trim the ends. And there you have it. Your super quick and easy Eastern Path Lotus Bead Stretch Bracelet. To create the Eastern Path
Gemstone Donut Bracelet, you’re going to need size eight Silver Plated Metal Round Seed Beads and then one 25 millimeter
Mookaite Light Gemstone Donut. You’re also going to need
Chinese Knotting Cord in the Burgundy in the 0.8 millimeter, Hypo Tube Cement and scissors. You can find all of these product links in the description below. Alrighty, so to make this bracelet, you first want to cut two 20-inch lengths of your cord and these are going to
be your anchor cords. You wanna take your donut, so you wanna fold those
20 inch lengths in half, so you can find that middle point and you’re just going to
create a larks head knot, putting it through the donut, and then bringing the
ends through that loop and just pulling tight. And do the same thing with the other end. Find that middle point,
bring that center through and then go through the ends and pull tight. Okay, and that’s just gonna
anchor it right onto your donut. And these threads that
are gonna be your anchor. Or these, this cord is gonna
be your anchor cord here. And then you wanna cut two 80-inch lengths for your tie-in cord. Okay, so I have one end here, 80 inches. And then what you wanna do is find the center point of that tie-in cord. You’re gonna bring that
under the anchor cord, then you’re gonna pass
the left tie-in cord over the anchor cord and then pass the right tie-in cord over the top of that left cord and then over the top
of this left cord here and then you’re gonna
go under the tie-in cord and then through and pull tight. Okay, and then you just wanna repeat that. You wanna bring the left
cord over the anchor cords, or you wanna bring the right cord over and then the left cord’s
gonna go over that right cord, then under the anchor cords and up through the loop. Just pull tight. Okay, and that’s gonna create one little square knot. And now we just wanna add
our beads to the ends. So to do that, you wanna make sure
that the ends are glued. So kind of cut the cord
a little bit of an angle and then take your Hypo Tube Cement, and just glue those ends. That’s just gonna stiffen them up so the beads can be
strung on a lot easier. Okay, so I’m just gonna let those dry for about 10 minutes. And I’ll be right back. Okay, so once I have glued the ends, just so it makes them a little bit stiff, I can go ahead and add these seed beads. Just makes it a lot easier to string them without the cord fraying. Okay, so string your beads, bring them way down. So now we wanna start from the left again. I’m gonna create another square knot. So bring the left tie-in cord over the anchor cord. Bring the right over the left cord and then
under the anchor cord and through that loop on the other side and bring it up through. Okay, and pull tight. Okay, and that’s just
gonna hold those seed beads right in place. And now I’m just going to go over, with the right cord, over the anchor cord, bring that left tie-in cord over the right, but then under the anchor
and through that loop. Pull tight to create a square knot. Okay, I’m just gonna repeat that. Add your seed beads to the tie-in cord ends, bring those down and then bring your left
cord over the anchor cord, bring that right tie-in cord
over that left tie-in cord, under the anchor cord and up through the loop
from the left cord. Okay, pull tight. We’re just gonna create
another with the left side. Or the, with the right side. So with the right tie-in cord, go over the anchor cord, have that left tie-in cord go over this right tie-in cord and then under the anchor cords and up through the loop that was created
with that right tie in cord. Pull tight, you can just kind of make sure they’re, just bring it up so they’re nice and snug. Okay, we’ll just do
that one more time here. Add your seed beads. Okay. And then you’re gonna take
your left tie-in cord, pass it over your anchor cords, take your right tie-in cord, put it over that left tie-in cord, under the anchor cord and then go through that loop created by that left tie-in cord. Pull tight. And then the same thing
starting on the right side. Over the anchor cord, take that left tie-in cord over that right tie-in cord, under the anchor and then through that loop made by that right tie-in cord. Okay, so I’m just gonna
go ahead and repeat that. And you want a total of 15 rows of seed beads on each side. So as soon as you get, so
right here, we have three rows. So you wanna get to a total of 15. I’m gonna go ahead and do that. I’ll be right back. So now you can see that I have my length finished here on one side,
which is 15 seed beads down. You can add length if you want
to, or subtract some length to make it longer or shorter, depending on what size
you’d like your bracelet. But this makes a nice about eight-inch and it’s also adjustable in the back, which I will show you. So after you have your length, you just wanna trim the ends here. Scissors. And then you wanna dab glue to secure them here. Okay, so there you have one end of your bracelet. And I’m just gonna go ahead and repeat exactly the same thing I did here over on the other side. Okay, so now you can see that I’ve done both sides of my macrame bracelet with beads. So after I’ve completed both sides, I wanna create this adjustable closure along the back here. So to do that part, you just wanna bring
these two ends together, just kind of run them side by side. You wanna take about a 12-inch length of your cord and again find that middle. And then you just wanna
create another square knot, just like we did before. Okay, just putting the
left cord over the anchor. which is both ends of the back. The right over, under the anchor, through that loop, pull tight and just switch sides, just like you did before
but with no beads. We’re just creating a macrame adjustable closure. You just wanna continue until you have about an inch, inch and a half. Okay, so I’m gonna go ahead and keep doing this ’til I have about inch and a half length worth. Okay, so I created about an inch length. Inch, inch and a half is what you want, depending on the size of your bracelet. So after you do your adjustable closure, you just wanna trim the ends. Okay, then dab glue to secure them. You just wanna let that dry. And now, I’m going to put just some seed beads on the ends. So to do that, I just wanna make sure I glue the ends so the seed beads will fit over easily, so it’s a little stiffer Okay, so I’m just gonna
let all of that glue dry for about 10 minutes. Okay, so after you let the ends dry, you wanna create a knot. So first you want to make it, make sure that when you
put your bracelet on, there’s still a lot of
wiggle room to get it on. And then at this point, you’ll
be able to pull on both ends to cinch this up so it all stays together and these cords right here will be hidden. But this is about the length I want it. So. From here, you just wanna create knots on each end. Okay, and then add your seed beads, and then create a knot on top just to hold that seed
bead right in place. There’s one side. Just wanna do that same
thing over on the other side. Okay, so now you just
wanna take your scissors and just trim those ends about a quarter of an inch. Okay, and there you have it. There’s your Eastern Path
Gemstone Donut Bracelet with an adjustable closure. Okay, now you have a really unique fun Eastern Path Bracelet Set that you can wear all
together or individually. You can find all of
the tools and materials to make this set at FusionBeads.com. (upbeat contemporary music)
