Learn how to make this stunning Crystal Weave Bracelet using Czech beads.

Step 1

Cut 40cm of silver cord, tie a knot 10cm down the cord and thread on a silver bead. Create a knot after the bead.
Threading the cord onto the beads can be quite tricky, I would suggest placing 1cm of glue at the endof the cord to stiffen the cord and cut the cord at a slant.

Step 2

Continue with step 1 until you have 15 silver beads on the strand. Now repeat step 1 to create another beaded strand.

Step 3

Now that you have two strands, place them side by side. Making sure one strand sits higher than the other, so that the beads sit diagonally from each other. I used a Macramé board to keep the strands in place.

Step 4

Cut 60cm of the blue cord and tie the blue cord onto both strands of the silver cord at one end.

Step 5

Start wrapping the blue cord around the beads diagonally to the end of your bracelet. Once you have reached the end of your bracelet, wrap the cord around the end and start wrapping the cord diagonally back down the bracelet.

Step 6

Once you have reached the end of your bracelet tie a knot around both silver cords, cut any excess cord. To neaten the ends of the knots place a small amount of glue on the ends of the cord.

Step 7

To finish cut 30cm of blue cord and create a sliding knot on the four silver strands. Then place a silver bead on each end of the silver cords and tie a knot at the end to secure the bead.
