Learn how to make this Cathedral Bracelet using a lovely Swarovski Xilion chaton in Tanzanite F and our green and purple round glass bead mix.

Step 1

To begin this bracelet, cut approximately 3 feet of your cord. Thread on one seed bead of either colour and thread it to the middle point of your cord.

From here, thread on 2 beads onto the 'right' strand of cord, and 1 onto the 'left' strand of cord. Pass the left cord through the last bead added on the right strand of cord and pull tight. Repeat this once.

Step 2

Thread on any 5 beads onto the right hand strand of cord. Push to the bottom and loop the cord back through the first added bead in an 'O' shape. Pull tight. This should form a loose cross shape. Repeat this exact step on the left hand cord. 

Thread on 2 beads onto the 'right' strand of cord, and 1 onto the 'left' strand of cord. Pass the left cord through the last bead added on the right strand of cord and pull tight. Repeat this once.
Continue the above pattern until your bracelet is approx. 3" long.

Step 3

Knot the cords to one side of the charm connector. 

Step 4

Repeat the previous 3 steps to make the other half of the bracelet.

Step 5

Add a jumpring and your clasp onto the end bead of one side of the bracelet, and a jumpring to the opposite side of the bracelet by opening the jumpring and threading it through the end bead. 

Step 6

Glue your chaton into your connector.
