Step 1

If you have not created a kumihimo braid before you will also need:
Kumihimo braiding disk
No Tangle Bobbins


Step 2

Cut 8 strands of s-lon cord approx. 30cm long. Tie all the threads together in a loose knot near the end of your cord

Step 3

Place the knot through the centre of the kumihimo braiding board. 

Step 4

Set up the kumihimo board for a normal 8 strand braid (one strand either side of each dot). If you haven't created an 8 strand braid before, click here to learn how. 

Step 5

Thread 10 seed beads of your choice on one strand and knot to keep in place (as the strands are quite short I found a knot worked better than a bobbin). Working clockwise, move to the next strand and thread 10 seed beads on, then knot. Work around the board in this way until you have 10 beads on each strand.

Step 6

Start braiding, using each strand once without any beads to begin. Now start adding your beads, adding a bead to every strand. If you haven't added beads to a braid before click here to see our related videos. 

Step 7

Braid until you have used all the beads. Create 0.5-1cm unbeaded braid, then knot all the threads together.

Step 8

To finish off, attach your earwire using a jump ring.
Now glue one end of the cord into a cord end, place the BeCharmed bead over the top of the knot and glue your end cap onto the end.
