DIY Nordstrom Bracelet

As promised, I am going to share this lovely bracelet that is all DIY and so easy and cute!
Saw something similar to this at Nordstrom and knew it could be re-created for much cheaper!

Materials:
Medium findings (gold circles in the bracelet)
Large findings (to finish the bracelet)
Clasps
Suede Cord (so many colors to choose from! Next up is teal)
Fabri-Tac or hot glue
**I am a gold person, but there are so many different colors

Directions:
Cut 3 even pieces of the suede cord (about 11 inches) Using all three pieces, tie one end in a knot.
 Start braiding the cord at the end where the knot is
Thread on the findings, each time you cross over the braid, but only on the two outside cords
When you have the desired length, tie a knot to end the braid.  You will now have the bracelet with a knot on each end.
You will then add a large finding to each end.  Fold over the extra cord and glue.
Add a clasp to one end and on the other end add as many small findings as you want to be able to adjust the size of bracelet.


And there you have it! So simple and cute! I am excited to make more colors using different suede cord and different color findings.  Oh the possibilities :) They look cute doubled or even tripled up too. 

*If something doesn't make sense in this tutorial, let me know and I can explain better! :)
