Learn how to make the Blissful Azore Necklace using Swarovski Pearls and Bicones.

Length of necklace measures 17" including clasp.

If you have not created a Kumihimo broad before you will also need:

Kumihimo Braiding Disk

No Tangle Bobbins

Step 1

Cut 8 strands of S-Lon approximately 70cm, tie all the cords together in the centre of the cord. Thread on the Zamak Crystal Tube.

Step 2

Place the knot/tube bead through the centre of the Kumihimo board and set up the board using an 8 strand braid. If you haven’t created an 8 strand braid before please click here to view our tutorial.

Step 3

Thread 8 beads of your choice on each of your 8 strands, and then start braiding. Once finished, tie a knot at the end of your braid. Repeat this for the other side of your braid.  

Step 4

Now thread the sterling silver cone onto the end of each braid. You will only need to thread 4 strands of the cord through the cone, cut the excess strands and hide the knot inside the cone. Add on 3 6mm Seamless round beads from the findings kit.

Step 5

Cut the ends of your cord to your required length and tie a knot at either end of the S-Lon cord. Glue the knots into the end of your magnetic clasp.
