These mizuhiki bracelets are easy and quick to make, perfect for a craft party. Make them in assorted colors and stack them on your wrists.
Mizuhiki Cord - You can find the cord online. You can also find it at Daiso.
Needle nose pliers
Gold Closures - I found these at Michaels. You could also use extra large crimp beads.
2. Trim edges of cord so your piece measures 8 inches. Make sure both sides of edges match up. You might want to make your cord shorter or longer depending on your wrist size.
3. Cut off loop on jewelry closure (pictured above). If you can find a closure without the loop, skip this step.
5. With needle nose pliers, crimp closure together. Refer to arrows in picture.
*This was the hardest part of the project. It took me a little while to figure out the best way to hold it in place and crimp it closed at the same time. You might want to have someone help you but it can be done by one person. Once I got going, it took me about 30 seconds per bracelet.
One of the pluses of using mizuhiki is that it's light and it doesn't make any noise when the bracelets brush up against each other. I like wearing stacked bangles but I don't care for sounding like a wind chime every time I so much as breathe.
