Nautical Rope Bracelet

Nautical Rope Bracelet

This nautical inspired rope bracelet is a modern and minimalist design, which would be a perfect gift for someone special.

If you like the design but fancy using an alternative charm link, browse our collection here or why not choose a different colour thread instead?

Remember to ensure your wrist size is measured and factored into your design.


1. Use scissors to cut 6 lengths of approximately 40cm thread. 

2. Take 3 pieces and thread them through the loop at the end of the rope charm. At the centre fold back so you now have 6 strands to plait. Divide them into 3 lots of 2 and begin to plait the strands. We found it easier to pinch the end with a bull dog clip and then plait. 

3. Plait 8cm and then tie a tight knot. Cut as close to the knot edge as possible to remove the excess thread.

4. Place the knot into the knot cover and squeeze gently with snipe or flat nose jewellery pliers.

5. Twist open a jump ring using snipe nose pliers and attach to the loop at the end of the knot cover.

6. Repeat steps 2 to 4 for the other side of the bracelet.

7. Open the bolt ring and add to one of the loops. Fasten the bracelet and your design is complete!
