Cobra Stitch Bracelet

This is my first creation using a decorative knot. This is called the Cobra Stitch. When I first saw it, I was like," I MUST make one!" So I looked around the house and found a pack of shoelaces. I sewed the two shoelaces together and started the the stitch. And I even cut the side release buckle from an old school bag.
 This bracelet is 8 1/2 " long excluding the buckle. So I used around maybe 6 ft of this shoelace. First I hitched it on one end of the buckle, then hitched it around the other end of the buckle, leaving a 8 1/2 " in between. Then I started the cobra stitch. Once I reached the ends where I started from, I cut off the excess lace and super glued the ends in place. You can add some beads, tags, etc. if you want.
This is no perfection (forgive me for that), but hey, it was my first try. And since I don't want you all to scavange the items you need from around the house, I have posted some links to the materials. Hope you are patient enough to wait till they arrive (unlike me).
