I would like to share my recent make with you called Blissful Blue bracelets, using our NEW shiny coated braiding cord finished off with an infinity charm. I just love the new shiny cord and thought that these three colours would work really well together.

Step 1 – To make the plait cut approximately 30cm of all three coloured cords and secure the ends into one end of the clasp with glue. Start creating a plait with the three cords until you have reached your desired length (design length 7”) and glue the ends of the cords in to the other end of your clasp.
Step 2 – Now cut 15cm of the cream cord and 15cm of the light blue cord, fold in half and loop both cords through the infinity charm either side (see image). Glue each ends into your clasp.
Step 3 – To finish your bracelet repeat step 1.
Step 1 – To create the macramé braid cut 30cm of cream cord and 30cm of blue cord. Fold the cords in half and attach to your infinity charm.
Step 2 – Cut another 30cm of cream and blue cord and start braiding onto the cord creating your square knots. Finish until you have reached your desired length, make sure you leave room for your sliding knot. Cut any excess cord and glue into place.
Step 3 – Cut 30cm of your light blue cord and create a sliding knot. Cut any excess cord and glue into place. Knot the ends of the cord you have created the sliding knot onto.
