Seafarer Collection

Overboard Bracelet

Blue_braclet_effected Pin-it%402x

Details

This one is all about the details. An oversize brass button acts as the clasp and a touch of teal thread keeps it all together. We love how so many men are adding a woven bracelet or two to their more classic looks for the summer so we're borrowing a bit from the boys here. It feels a Pitto Oumo and a little Costa Rican surf camp, both of which we'd like an invite to attend. This is one of those cases where less is more- no need to stack on the bracelets. Just don't tell anyone we said that.

Tools

  • super glue
  • scissors

Materials

  • braided leather rope (It’s cool. It’s vegan)
  • teal cotton thread
  • shiny brass button clasp

1

Gather your scissors and super glue.

2

Thread the brass button clasp onto the leather cord. Slide it about an inch from the end.

3

Fold the remaining inch of cord over on itself.

4

Holding both ends of the folded cord in one hand start to wrap them together with the teal thread. Leave a small tail at the end to use for a knot in a moment.

5

Continue wrapping the thread. We wrapped it around about eight times.

6

Tie a knot. Make it a double (or even a triple) and add a very small dab of glue to the knot.

7

Clip your threads close to the knot.

Now that you've secured your clasp measure where you'd like the loop. This will depend on your wrist and how loose you'd like the bracelet to fit.

9

With your wrist measured create a loop with the cord on the opposite end of the cord. The brass button should fit snugly through it.

Again wrap the teal thread around both cords in order to keep the loop secure.

Double knot your thread and add a small dab of glue before snipping the excess thread.

Cut any extra cord you may have.

13

Clasp it onto your wrist using the button clasp- just like you would insert a button into a buttonhole.
