To create this Forest Sunset bracelet, you should make sure you have mastered the technique of Kumihimo braiding with beads. If you haven't yet, you can watch a handy video tutorial here.

If  you have not created a Kumihimo braid before you will also need: Kumihimo Braiding Disk and No Tangle Bobbins.

Step 1

Set up your Kumihimo disk for an 8 strand braid using Nymo beading thread.

(Please note - S-Lon will not work for this design as the holes are too small in the pressed pips.) 

Step 2

Mix up your pressed pips if you want to copy this exact design, or simply choose beads in your own colour ways. Using your needle to pick up the beads, add 15 seed beads, 15 pressed pips and another 15 seed beads to each strand. Braid 1cm of unbeaded braid. Braid with beads until you have all your beads braided in.

Step 3

Create another 1cm of unbeaded braid. Remove all your strands from the bobbins and knot against the last section of braiding. Use a dab of Fevi Kwik glue to secure underneath your knots on both ends of your bracelet. Trim knots away and push ends into end caps, using Fevi Kwik.

Step 4

Attach a jumpring to both end caps and a then lobster onto one. You may wish to add an extension chain onto the opposite side.
