Learn how to make the the Lilac Air Bracelet inspired by the Swarovski Spring/Summer 2017 innovations - The Balance of Nature. This delicate bracelet features pretty Swarovski crystal bicones in vintage rose, violet, light silver and black diamond. 

Step 1

Take a length of cord measuring approx 56".
Thread the cord through your button to its halfway point so you have 28" of cord on either side. Knot below the button.
Take a 2 long arms span of thread (you may need to add more if you want to work with a shorter length.)
Thread this onto your needle. Secure your thread into the knot below the botton.
To make the pattern, take a bead and thread around one side of your two cords.
Place the bead in the middle of the two cords. Thread under the opposite cord and come around this. Go back through the bead and repeat this pattern making an 8 shape with your thread with your beads in the centre. 
If you run out of thread, secure it to your cords and start your pattern with a new piece of thread. 

Step 2

When you are happy that your bracelet will wrap around your wrist 3 times, knot the two cords together and secure your thread. 
Knot again approx. 1.5cm after the last knot and then knot a 3rd time 1.5cm from the 2nd knot. 
Trim your cords to finish your bracelet.
