Another interesting tutorial from Kasia - just a cord and some surgical steel rounds. Do you like such minimalism in jewellery? Let Kasia show you how easy jewellery making can be. Let's get Creative!

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'. 

Remember - 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 beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream piece of jewellery.

Step 1

Cut the cord into 7 sections, approx. 21 cm each. Thread a bead through the first two sections. Slide it to the centre of the cord.

Step 1

Step 2

Thread one of the cords through the next ball. We add the third cord, which we also thread through it.

Step 1

Step 3

We perform the same operation on the other side, so that h the elements are arranged symmetrically.

Step 1

Step 4

In the same way, add another cord, but this time we thread two additional beads between the two extreme beads.

Step 1

Step 5

Repeat the action until we connect all the cords together.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 6

We put more and more additional beads on each cord, so that they fill the growing free space.

Step 1

Step 7

Put the ends of the cords together, we can loosely twine them.

Step 1

Step 8

Glue the ends into the holes of the magnetic clasp.

Don't forget to keep the ends separate until the glue is dry - The clasp can become stuck together if you are not careful.

Step 1

Step 9

Once the glue is dry, the bracelet is ready to wear!

TIPS

Slider Beads can be used at each end of the rows to stabilise the pattern. you would need 10 slider beads (5 packs of 2) in total (to replace the outer beads on each row).

Pulling the cords through the beads may be a bit tricky but it is important that the beads sit snugly or the whole structure of the bracelet will be loose. Try adding a drop of glue to the end of your cords to stiffen them and make it easier to thread the beads.

A small crochet hook or a pair of pliers might also be helpful to pull the cord through the beads.
