    Fold over and tie a knot in the leather cord to form a loop. Attach a beading thread to the bottom of the knot, then start threading beads. String one bead in the first row, two in the second row, and so on until you reach the desired width of your bracelet.

    Step 3: Secure the Beads

    Wrap the beading string below one edge of the cord, then loop the beads for your row. Wrap the thread onto and throughout the opposite end of the cordage, then coil it back into the beads in your row. Doing so will hold the beads in place.

    Step 4: Finish the Bracelet
