- 1m black synthetic cord, 0,5 diameter

Take the leather cord and double it over. Tie a simple double knot on the edge of the folded leather cord with the 1m synthetic cord. Cut and burn with a lighter the excess synthetic cord and place the rest on a paper clip.
Pass the synthetic cord below the left leather cord. Put one grey bead through the synthetic cord and then put the synthetic cord below the right leather cord. Put the bead through the synthetic cord again, this time from right to left, and then pass the synthetic cord below the left leather cord, and pull tight.
Repeat the process to create 9 rows of beads in total. Each row has a different number of beads to create the Evil Eye. The 1st and 9th row have 1 bead. The 2nd and 8th row has 2 beads, the 3rd and 7th row has 3 beads, the 4th and 6th row has 4 beads and the 5th row has 5 beads, four of them are grey and the middle one is black.
Right below the last row of beads tie a simple double know with the synthetic cord around the two leather cords. Cut the excess cords and burn the synthetic cord. The Evil Eye is ready.
Pass the two 40cm synthetic cords through the two sides of the ?vil Eye and tape on a surface. Take the 60cm sneak cord and make 25 square macram knots on each side of the Evil Eye Bracelet.
Make the adjustable macram closure of the Evil Eye Bracelet using the 40cm synthetic cord and making 10 square macram knots. Tie two simple knots at the double ending strands of the bracelet. Cut the excess cords and burn the edges with the lighter.
