Difficulty: Intermediate


Follow these simple step-by-step instructions to create the gorgeous "Arabian Night" bracelets as seen in the "Jasmine" Collection.

Step 1

Macrame Braided Bracelet - 


For this bracelet you will need to understand the basic technique of creating a Shamballa fashion bracelet using square knots (macrame). You can find a diagram and instructions here.


Attach your cord to one side of the glass connector and begin to braid. Repeat on the other side of the connector charm. Once both sides have been braided to the required length, you can create your sliding knot.

Create a sliding knot as seen in the instructions listed above and secure with a dab of glue (Fevi Kwik or Gem Tac).

Attach a large rose gold spacer bead onto each strand followed by a knot to complete (the strands used to pull the sliding knot tight).


Step 2

Chain Bracelet -

Cut a length of chain you require for your bracelet and cut into two equal pieces. Attach a lobster clasp using jumprings. Attach the glass connector to the other ends of the chain using jumprings.

Step 3

Bronze Beaded Bracelet -

Cut approximately 30cms of elastic. Thread on your beads in a pattern of 1 smalln rose gold spacer bead and 3 bronze round beads. Repeat 5 times, finishing on another rose gold spacer (check the length and remove/add beads if needed). Attach two necklace ends to the cord and trim if necessary. Attach the glass connector charm to the necklace ends using a pair of pliers to open and close the loops.
