Is it okay to take off a friendship bracelet?
The recipient is entitled to one wish. If they do not take off the bracelet ever and just let it fall off naturally, their wish will be granted. Another Native American tradition says that removing a bracelet before it has worn off naturally is a sign that the friendship has ended.

|Tight is better, but not so tight that the other knots switch colors. (This happens a lot when I do regular chevrons.) Hard as a rock is good, especially for a keychain and a bracelet because after time (and after a few showers) it’ll loosen up. When I do a regular zig zag I know the ends always curl so don’t worry if it curls. If it’s loose, it will look absolutely horrible. I’m teaching a friend how to do them now, and he did a Chinese staircase. It looked dreadful and I had to make him do it again with tighter knots. Looser knots also have the opportunity to break faster. If you find a happy medium, that’s good. I make knots with speed (I’ve been making bracelets for about 7 years) and sometimes with speed comes tight knots. Just practice!|

|Neither too tight on some bracelets is aweful (like peruvian) and loose well looks pretty bad so just pull it tight but not too tight, and not too loose.|
|RE: Tight or lose? by kokoemeh 13 years ago|
|I really think it’s personal preference. I mean, as people have said, too tight can be real bad & too loose can be really bad. However, sometimes loose doesn’t look extremely bad. It just depends. However, I’m sure if you try to find that perfect median, you can after a bit of time.|
|RE: Tight or lose? by TweedyBird 13 years ago|
|Personally, I think that loose knots don’t look good because you can’t see the pattern and your bracelet doesn’t stay together. But knots that are too tight make your bracelets super small. It all depends on what you like. After a while, you can easily find that perfect in between. it just takes practice and time.|

|I tie mine tight but not too tight. Sometimes loose knots look cool but if you get them too lose then they don’t look that great.|

How do you tie off a bracelet easy?
Download Article Download Article Making friendship bracelets can be really fun, but it’s hard to know the best way to tie them onto your wrist. Start your bracelet with a loop on one side or braid the frayed ends on each side. Then, choose from a number of non-permanent ways to tie your bracelet on. While this is easier with a friend’s help, there are different ways you can try to tie your bracelet on yourself.
- 1 Make a loop before starting your friendship bracelet, To make a loop, fold the threads in half and grab the threads where they’re folded at the middle. Tie a knot in the folded threads about 1 in (2.5 cm) down to create a loop. Then, continue making your friendship bracelet!
- 2 Make 2 braids out of the frayed end. After you’ve finished making your bracelet, use all of the frayed strings on 1 end to tie a knot. Then, separate the strings into 2 equal groups, make a braid out of each group, and knot the ends. Cut off any excess string that’s coming out of the knot. Advertisement
- 3 Feed 1 braid through the loop and tie for easy security. Once you’ve made 2 braids out of the frayed end of your bracelet, feed 1 braided end through the loop. Then, tie the 2 braided ends together into a knot.
- Take off your bracelet by simply untying the knot to separate the 2 braids. Then, just pull the bracelet away from your wrist.
- 4 Make a sliding knot if you want an adjustable bracelet. Lay the bracelet on a flat surface, grab the very top of the loop, and fold the loop in half down and away from you. Grab this smaller, thicker loop you’ve formed and feed both braids through. Hold the bracelet close to the looped end and pull it so that it tightens around the braid.
- If you want to remove your bracelet, slide the sliding knot down towards the bottom of the braided ends until it’s loose enough to slip off.
- 5 Braid the ends through the loop if they’re long. Pull the bracelet around your wrist, feed 1 braid through the loop, and hold the end in the palm of your hand. Do this with the other braid but pull it towards your elbow. Feed the braid that’s in your palm through the loop and pull it towards your elbow.
- To take off your bracelet, untie the knot, Then, look for the last loop you made in the braid and pull it back through the bracelet’s looped end. Continue pulling out the loops that make up the braid in reverse order until you can remove the bracelet.
- 1 Tie the ends together into a knot. Make a single braid out of each frayed end and knot the end of the braid. Then tie the braids together twice and pull it tight. This should secure the bracelet onto your wrist.
- 2 Braid and knot both ends and feed them through each other. Separate each end into 2 groups and make 2 very short braids on 1 side that only repeat the braiding pattern once or twice. Stop, gather all of the loose strings making up the 2 braids, and continue braiding the 2 braids into 1 bigger one. This will create a small hole at the top of the braid. Knot the end and repeat on the other side. Secure the bracelet onto your wrist by feeding each braid through the opposite hole you created.
- 3 Overlap the 2 ends and macrame them together. Make a single braid out of each frayed end and secure each of them by knotting the ends. Then, create a circle with the bracelet (in the way that you use when you wrap it around your wrist) and overlap the 2 braided ends so that the bracelet is a desirable size. Then, use two pieces of string, each 2 in (5.1 cm) long, to tie each knotted end of your bracelet to the braid that it’s overlapping. Use another string to tie macrame knots around these overlapping ends between the 2 tied pieces of string, and remove the 2-inch pieces of string when you’re done.
- 1 Feed the ends through the loop before you put the bracelet on, If you’re putting on a bracelet with a looped end, first feed 1 of the braided ends through the loop and hold the knotted end of that braid to secure the bracelet into the shape of a large circle. While still holding the knotted end with 1 hand, slip the bracelet onto your other hand and pull the end so that the bracelet tightens. Hold 1 braid with 1 hand and the other braid with the other hand and tie them together into a knot.
- 2 Tape 1 end of your bracelet to the inside of your wrist. Place a piece of scotch tape about 2 in (5.1 cm) away from one end of your bracelet. Stick the taped bracelet to the inside of your wrist. Then, bring the other end around and tie the 2 ends together.
- 3 Hold the looped bracelet in place with a paper clip, Unfold a paper clip so that it’s in the shape of a narrow “s.” Hold 1 end of the “s” by pressing it against your palm with your fingers from the same hand. Hook the looped end of your bracelet around the other end of the “s.” Bring the braided ends around and tie them together through the loop while holding the loop in place with the paper clip. Then slide the paper clip out.

Tie a knot in the threads of the bracelet about 1 inch (2.5 cm) down from the loop. Once you’ve finished weaving the bracelet, split the remaining threads into two groups and braid each of them. Knot the end of each braid. To make an adjustable closure, lay the bracelet on a flat surface and fold the loop back behind the knot at the top.
You should now have two smaller loops. Squeeze them together like you’re closing the pages of a book. Pull the braids at the end through the two smaller loops, then pull the other end of the bracelet to tighten the loops around the braids. Slide the braids through the loops in either direction to adjust the length of the bracelet.
Is it OK to shower with bracelets?
Can I wear my pearls in the shower? – Pearls are incredibly delicate products of nature. This being so, a pearl’s lustrous surface can easily be affected by any chemicals, oils, soaps, shampoos, cosmetics, and alkaline environments. As a strict guideline, you should never shower with your pearls on and always wipe them gently after wearing with a soft cloth.
All in all, you should remove your jewelry and timepieces before showering to prolong the life and luster of your investment. If you accidentally expose your jewelry to soaps and oils in the shower, quickly rinse it off with plain water and dry thoroughly yet gently with a soft cloth. We recommend designating a place that is conveniently near or in your bathroom away from any drains for safe keeping while bathing.
To prevent the risk of breakage, carefully remove your jewelry over a soft surface. Pay special care to this process while traveling, as valuable pieces can often be forgotten when you are busy and out of your normal routine. Follow these easy guidelines to ensure your jewelry and timepieces look as lustrous as the day they you got them!
