Catch and Go Bracelets and Phone Tassel Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Pokemon GO is the latest craze and we decided to make some fun bracelets and a cell phone charm inspired by the app! These designs are easy to customize to match your favorite Pokemon or to represent your team in the game. Find more inspiration to "Catch 'em All" in this blog post.

Cell Phone Tassel

Step one:
Create a herringbone weave using The BeadSmith Super-Lon bead cord in yellow, red, and black colors. Learn this weave here. Make the weave as long as you prefer. Ours is about one inch long.

Step two:
Add TOHO 11/0 frosted Ceylon butter yellow seed beads to each tail of the weave for a fun tassel. When they are just about the length you want, add a TOHO 8/0 matte opaque cherry bead and then another yellow bead. Knot the ends of each cord and trim. Knot the strands at the top of your tassel to a 14K/20 gold-filled closed jump ring.

Chevron Bracelet

Step one:
Create a herringbone weave using yellow, red, black, and copper Super-Lon bead cord. Keep weaving until your bracelet is the desired length and make a knot at the end. Trim the tails on both ends of the bracelet to your liking.

Step two:
Attach a 5mm satin Hamilton gold-plated open jump ring into the weave at the center of the bracelet. For help opening and closing jump rings, please see our video tutorial. Attach the TierraCast antique gold-plated pewter round alphabet charm to the jump ring using another jump ring. Attach the TierraCast gold open heart charm to the second jump ring using a third jump ring.

Red Square Knot Bracelet

Step one:
Use The BeadSmith 1.5mm dark Siam Chinese knotting cord to create a square knot bracelet. Learn the square knot technique here. Continue until the bracelet is the desired length and make a knot at the end. Trim the tails on both ends to your liking.

Step two:
Attach a sterling silver 5mm 20.5 gauge open round jump ring into the weave at the center of the bracelet. Attach a sterling silver letter P charm to this jump ring using another jump ring. Attach a JBB sterling silver V alphabet charm to the same jump ring using two jump rings linked together.

Yellow and Blue Square Knot Bracelets

Step one:Use The BeadSmith .8mm topaz Chinese knotting cord to create a square knot bracelet. Continue until the bracelet is the desired length and make a knot at the end. Trim the tails to your liking.

Step two:
Attach a JBB sterling silver I alphabet charm to one end of the bracelet using a 925/10 silver-filled 4mm 21 gauge open jump ring.

Step three:
Repeat steps one and two with The BeadSmith .8mm neon deep blue Chinese knotting cord and the M alphabet charm to create the blue bracelet.
