Bronze Beaded Kumihimo Bracelet

Thank you for viewing our archived gallery design. This design is in the gallery archive because we no longer stock some of the main items used to make this design and we don’t currently have suitable alternatives. However we didn’t want to remove the design completely as we thought it might inspire you. If you’d like to buy all the items needed to create a project please visit our main design gallery and browse our current designs.

Step 1

Before you try this, get used to making a standard kumihimo braid. For full instructions see our lilac kumihimo bracelet.

Step 2

Using S-Lon thread instead of rattail, thread a quarter of a pack of size 8 seed beads on to each thread until you have 8 beaded threads. Tie together.

Step 3

Set up your kumihimo board as you would for a standard kumihimo braid, winding the threads into the no-tangle bobbins and leaving the beads outside the bobbin.

Step 4

Braid a few cms using just the threads, then bring one bead up each time you work a thread and position it at the top of the working thread. Repeat until your bracelet is the desired length.

Step 5

Whip the ends as with a normal kumihimo braid and glue on end caps.
