Learn how to make this Crystal Glamour Bracelet using sparkling shamballa slider beads and antique leather cord!

Step 1

Cut a length of cord measuring approx. 7".
Cut a shorter length measuring approx. 5.5".
Thread these to their halfway point through your larger shamballa slider bead and curve them towards you.

Repeat and thread another two lengths of cord through the slider bead and curve them the other way making sure the shorter lengths sit nearest the edges of the slider bead and the longest sit through the centre.
You may need to cut your cords to a point or squash the ends flat, so they can fit through the slider bead.


Step 2

Take the shortest length of leather cord on each side of the slider bead and thread a smaller slider bead onto these two together. 
Add a small drop of glue at the end of the cords to hold them together. 

Step 3

Take the longest length of cord and curve each side in to meet the central cords. 
Lightly glue these to the centre cords to create a single 6mm thick, flat cord. 
This will then be glued into your cord end when you are happy with how your cords are positioned.
Repeat this on the other side and glue on your cord end. 

Step 4

Take the longest length of cord and curve each side in to meet the central cords. 
Lightly glue these to the centre cords to create a single 6mm thick, flat cord. 
This will then be glued into your cord end when you are happy with how your cords are positioned.
Repeat this on the other side and glue on your cord end. 

Step 5

Attach a lobster clasp to one end of your bracelet using one or two jumprings. 
Attach a chain of jumprings to the other end of your bracelet as an extension chain.
