DIY Easy Braided Bracelet

Today I come doubly excited! Oh yeah! Today I’m sharing a super fun and easy crafty Jewelry piece that I just LOVE and I’m also sharing my very first video tutorial for this easy braided bracelet. How cool is that? But ok, please, forgive my video mistakes as it’s my first and I kind of moved the camera by accident a couple times and also went out of camera. I’m still getting the hang of it. Still I love how it turned out!!!

DIY Easy Braided Bracelet

I saw this bracelet a long time ago and it got stuck in my head. Although I’m not sure it was made exactly like this, I thought I would finally give it a try with how I could remember. It’s fun, it’s easy to make and most of all it’s so versatile. You can make it in any color; you can combine colors and the metallic parts and you can use different sizes of cord and jump rings. I had so much fun I made 3 all at once LOL.

Easy crafts are my faves, anything I can make in minutes or at least within the same day is awesome and that’s why I loved these braided bracelets so much. In one hour you can have about 10 of these made LOL. Hope you enjoy this tutorial and that it inspires you to make some for yourself.

These cuties are also perfect as gifts! You will never go wrong with crafty jewelry!


So Let’s get to it, shall we?

Here is the Video tutorial for this cute and Easy Braided Bracelet

Prefer Step by Step photos? You got it!!!


  • 2 Leather cord Strips
  • Lobster clasp
  • About 10 to 15 jump rings {the size will depend on the cords}
  • 2 Cord Ends
  • Nose Pliers
  • Scissors


Start by getting your 2 leather cord strips and align them together. Then insert them into one jump ring: one strip from front to back and the other one from back to front. Like this:


Then insert a second jump ring but then inverse the process. The strip that came from the back, insert it from front to the back. You should get something like this:


Keep inserting jump rings alternating the strips until you get the right size for your wrist.



Cut any leftover of the leather cord leaving a few millimeters to put the cord ends.

Put together both cord strip ends and put in place the cord end and close it. With a flat nose plier secure the cord end. These type of cord ends has sort of teeth so once you secure them they won’t come off unless you push really hard.


Open a jump ring with your pliers and insert the cord end and your lobster clasp. Close the jump ring.


Do the same on the other end of the bracelet but this time insert only the cord end. Close the jump ring.


There you Go!!!!

    Hi Camila! Lovely with easy making sometimes. Good start with your video, you have to start somewhere. More time for the supplies to show and when you start braid let it go sloooowly so we are able to understand then you can fast forward. My thought about it.
    And as the other says closer to the object. Now I got another have-to-do-project.
    Thank´s for tutorial/video.

      Hi Marie!

      Thank you so much for your feedback! So appreciated!
      Hope you have lots of fun creating these braided bracelets!
      Sending love and hugs!

    Love this DIY bracelet and may be planning a program for it. One question, does the lobster clasp come with the round ends that connect to the cord?

    1. Camila

      Donna thank you very much!
      Those are called jump rings and it depends on the brand and where you buy those supplies. Sometimes the pack comes with lobster clasps and jump rings and sometimes you have to buy them separately. However, I found it better to always buy them separately because I can control the size of the jump rings. I usually prefer working with smaller jump rings than those that come with clasps. Hope this helps!

    Hi Camila
    I love these bracelet, I would like to make different colors, but I just need to ask you how long are the leather cords that you used and what size of jump rings too. I will really appreciate your help. Thank you

    Hi Camilla,

    Awesome bracelets. I have a question for you, what size clamp ends did you use?

    1. Camila

      I’m so sorry for the late reply Samantha, If you are still interested, I used 6mm clamp. Hope this helps.
      Thank you for stopping by!

      1. Camila

        Thank you. No apologies needed. Thank you for replying. It was a big help.

  6. Camila

    This is a really cute idea, but your video needs to zoom in closer, it is too hard to see what you are doing, since work is so small.

    1. Camila

      Hi Jade,

      Thank you for your feedback and insight. As you might have read this was my very first video and I’ve been working around new strategies and more effective ways to create them. I’ll keep your suggestion in mind for future videos, zooming in more when the work is more intricate.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and leaving me your ideas!

  7. Camila

    Wow, what a great idea! So if I use a 3mm cord what size ring should I use, 6mm or 8mm? I’m looking forward to making these with my daughter and her friends.

    1. Camila

      THANK YOU so much!!! Yes I used 3mm leather cord and 6mm Jump rings. If you use 8mm the loops would be too loose. Hope you both have fun making these bracelets!

      Hugs and thanks so much for stopping by!

    I love your bracelets however there are so many ads that leaving this comment is way too much of a challenge as page keeps opening and closing!

    1. Camila

      Hi Sandy, So sorry to hear you are having a hard time on my site. I would appreciate if you could explain a bit more what’s the issue so I can work on it. Why exactly do you say the page keep opening and closing? My Ads are not suppose to be invasive nor opening new pages. You are the first person saying this and I would like you to be the last, so I’m interested in knowing the exact problem so I can fix it.

      Thank you for still leaving your lovely comment and letting me know there is something going on.

    1. Camila

      Thank you so much Hada. Your kind words are so much appreciated! I’m so glad yo like this project and that you make many of these!


    1. Camila

      I found this and love it. I just need to know how long leather cord and size of lobster claws.

      Thank you so much for sharing this. I can’t wait to make this.

      1. Camila

        Hi Ching,
        Well, the length of the cord will depend on your wrist perimeter + 1/2 inch or so. The lobster clasp it’s up to you. One that you like better. I would suggest one close to the size of the jump ring. For example, this one each cord is 3mm so the jump rings are 6mm, so I would go for one between 6 and 8 mm. But hey! To be honest there are many pretty claps out there that could also look great. just follow your taste and use what you love!
        Hugs and thank you for stopping by!!!

    Cami, your bracelets are wonderfully beautiful — and don’t look just too difficult to make. But, most of all, your video is PERFECT! I saw absolutely nothing wrong with it! Great job — and I look forward to viewing more of them in the future. Thanks for the lesson! Smiles, Linda at Paper Seedlings
