I knew as soon as @TheTravelWitch posted the challenge that I was going to make one of these bracelets. I haven’t made (ever) but I used to make something similar as a child. I love knot magick and magick involving weaving anything together. I mean, I crochet and it is one of my favorite hobbies. I even braid knots into my hair and weave spells into my day in inconspicuous ways using knots and strings. There are no limits, and this little exercise just goes to show that.
I saw a tutorial recently on how to make a friendship bracelet and I thought that would be perfect for this challenge, but also for a bit of magic.
I chose colors very intentionally to match the spell I would weave as I created this bracelet.
Blues and yellows and greens
This specific bracelet uses a cardboard cutout with eight slits in the side, evenly spaced around. You then take seven lengths of string in various colors. I chose to use embroidery thread because it is thinner. You can use yarn if you want, or twine, ribbon, or anything else.
I’ll leave the video for how to make this one down at the bottom because it is seriously super easy.
Here are some pictures of the process and then what it looks like now that it is done.
I didn’t have a specific mantra while making this and, if I’m being 100% honest, I was actually watching a documentary about aliens however, I was very mindful of the colors and the intention behind the bracelet. Just the fact that I could sit and make it was an act of magick in itself.
I may not wear it every day, but this was a beautiful and fun experience. Plus my daughter is making one for herself, too!
