Sometimes, the plainest jewelry can be the best ones!

Cut six sizes of satin strings in different colors roughly 55 centimeters long. Set one aside for future use.
Get one of the cords and string on metal beads. Place the beads in the middle of the strand and tie an overhand knot on both sides of the beads. Doing so will keep the metal beads in place. Do the same thing in the next four beads, putting nine, seven, five, and three beads in each.
Place a metal bead and tie an overhand knot at each tip of the satin strings.
Wrap all the fibers around the edge of the macramé board and bind the tips of the bracelet so that they can pass through.
This is the perfect time to use the string you set aside. Thread that cord beneath all the bracelet strands, passing through the edge of the macramé board and centering it below them.
Tie a macramé square knot. To do this, you need to get the left cord and place it on all pieces to make a loop on the left.
Take the right string and put it on the left, crossing the tip beneath all the fibers where they pass through the hoop. Stretch the ends tight to secure the knot.
Repeat steps six and seven, but this time, you have to start with the right cord.
Keep knotting, alternating the left and right cords until you reach your desired length. Dab a drop of glue to the last knot and the corners of the square knot. Let it dry completely before cutting off the excess cord.
Decide on the length of the tassels to get the wristband over your hand. Adjust the metal beads and trim off the excess strings. Apply glue to each knot and let it dry completely.
You now have your finished trinket! Make more stacking bracelets and add them to your handmade jewelry collection or give them as gifts to your loved ones.
