Agnieszka Wajzer-Nowak has prepared a DIY tutorial in which she will show you how to make beautiful braided bracelets from cords. Are you ready to create something special? Let's Braid!

You can add all the items you need to your basket by clicking the box in the 'Products used' section above, or you can let your imagination run wild and choose your own materials from the links below. Please note that the colours for the products illustrated in the image above may not match the 'Products List'. 

  • Waxed Cord - to make a thicker bracelet presented in the course, you will need a total of approx. 440 cm of 2mm waxed cotton string. A satin string or a 2mm thong will work equally well.
  • OR for a single braid you could use Leather Cord - for bracelets made of single braids, Agnieszka used a 2mm natural strap.
  • Clasp - toggle clasp in the case of a thicker bracelet or lobster clasp in the case of bracelets with leather straps presented in the course.
  • Charms - Optional - you can use any, small pendant with dimensions of about 15x9mm to decorate the bracelets.
  • End Cap - For a thicker string bracelet, you will need tips with a hole of 9 to 10mm. For a bracelet made of a single "braid", you will need tips with a hole of about 5m.
  • Jump Rings - sizes 6-7mm, open type. Remember to choose the metal elements of the bracelets in the same shade of metal (this applies to pendants, rings, clasps)
  • Glue

We believe that jewellery should be as individual as you are and so our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your creative imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery.
