Inspired by the Pandora brochure "How to tie the knot", the maritime atmosphere on the island where I just spent a three week vacation, and the patch of German clovers that still grew there... Wink

"How to":

You need: two Pandora textile bands, a Pandora stopper and 5-7 silvers, preferrably identical ones which can sit crosswise to the usual direction on the bracelet.

Thread both bands through the first bead and pull through until bead sits roughly in the middle. Now take the slightly longer end (both ends) and thread through the first bead again *from the opposite direction* (a little like a shoe lace), creating a small loop. Both ends (four strands) should now have the same length and bead sits at a right angle to usual direction.

Tie a plain knot ("half hitch" in maritime terms) over all four strands.

Continue with next bead: One end (both strands) go through the bead from the right, the other from the left (a bit like the shoe lace), then a half hitch securing all four strands. And so on, until last bead is on.

To tie bracelet around wrist, pull ends through loop and fix it making two half hitches on the standing part, then secure the loose ends with the Pandora stopper.

As you can see, I did it in a rather slipshod way - the ends aren't equal length. But as long as the ends aren't too long and there's no danger of the ends going through the stopper one by one (a single strand might slip through), and I don't run the danger of meeting a mariner who would tell me off for such sloppy seamanship, I think I will just leave it this way!

The TS silk is much smoother than the Pandora textile cord, hope it doesn't slip too much... It will of course work with any length of string, but the ends need to be capped to prevent them from slipping through the stopper. Or one might tie a stopper knot in them.

Seriously though, I LOVE this look. Do you wear it on it's own, or with a stack of other bracelets?
