inspired by this borrowed post

For single, adjustable gold tube bracelets, you’ll need:

Start by cutting the knotting cord into 2 12 inch pieces. Thread a gold noodle tube bead through one of the strands and cross the ends.
And now, all that’s left is the sliding closure! Similar to our macrame bracelet, fold the 2nd strand over the overlapping ends and start tying square knots. Fold the top cord over the bottom cord . . .
. . . and bring the top cord under both the bottom and middle overlapping strands through the loop, into a knot.
Repeat the same step on the right side.
Continue to make 5-6 more knots.
To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 2-3 knots along the backside. Pliers will help pull the needle through the tight knots.
Trim away any excess cord.
Thread two gold spacer beads onto each cord and tie the tips into a knot. Trim.
Your adjustable & colorful bracelets are done!

For a leather wrap gold tube bracelet, you’ll need:

Insert one end of the leather cord into the crimp on cord end. Take a pair of chainnose pliers and squeeze the middle of the end cap to secure the leather cord.
Thread on 7-8 gold noodle tube beads.
Wrap the bracelet around the wrist to gauge the proper length. Trim and crimp on the second end cap.
Using the pliers, open the jump ring connected to the clasp and connect it to one of the end caps.
Wrap, close and your bracelet is complete!
Layer and enjoy.

avi is super excited for tonight
