Here you can see the progress tensioning the cross-binding thread. Each side loop is tensioned in turn against the framing cord and cable tie.
In this picture you can see how to insert the crochet hook under the cable tie. As the nylon binding thread is drawn through the bracelet width will diminish as the infill cords are squeezed together.
Hint: You will want to use the small pliers as the cord fabric will be dense and hard to penetrate.
The finished bracelet will shrink slightly from the mold size due to the compression of the cords during the binding process.
