Sliding knots come in very handy when making casual bracelets such as friendship bracelets, shambhala style bracelets, or other macrame braclets and necklaces using leather or cord.
It’s also nice to have a one-size-fits-all solution if you’re selling jewelry online where people are unable to try your handmade jewelry on for size.
This video shows you how to make a single sliding knot as an alternative to a square knot or two sliding knots, which are both common ways to create adjustable closures for your cord and leather jewelry.
You can purchase this same brown cord I used in the video and the tiny silver beads that fit over the cord in my Etsy jewelry supply shop. Other colors of cord are available here on Amazon or in most craft supply shops.

Hey where did you get those purple beads? :) I bought something similar a while ago but the holes are soooo small, no cord fits :(
I like your nice styles
