Thank you for viewing our archived gallery design. This design is in the gallery archive because we no longer stock some of the main items used to make this design and we don’t currently have suitable alternatives. However we didn’t want to remove the design completely as we thought it might inspire you. If you’d like to buy all the items needed to create a project please visit our main design gallery and browse our current designs.

Step 1

Cut approx. 80cm worth of leather, fold this in half and tie a knot.

The loop you have created needs to be big enough to fit a rivioli crystal.

Step 2

Using approx. 1 metre of shamballa fashion cord (nylon waxed cord) thread it through the centre of the 2 leather strands and tie a knot (you should now have 2 strands of shamballa fashion cord measuring about the same length)

Step 3

Thread the right hand side shamballa fashion cord OVER the first leather strand and UNDER the second leather cord.

Step 4

Pick up the original left hand side shamballa fashion cord  and thread OVER the nearest strand of leather and UNDER the furthest strand of leather.

Step 5

Repeat Step 2 another 7 times.

Step 6

Place the cup chain beneath the shamballa fashion cord

Step 7

Thread the right hand cord diagonally across the inside of the cupchain. Thread the left hand cord diagonally in the opposite direction through the cupchain.

Step 8

Your now, right hand cord needs to go OVER the right leather cord, UNDER the cupchain and UNDER the left cord.
Move on to the cord you haven't used and go OVER the left strand of leather, OVER the cupchain and UNDER the furthest right strand of leather. You have now completed a full knot.

Step 9

Continue to loop your shamballa fashion cord under and over the leather cords.

Step 10

Repeat step 9 until you are happy with the length of your bracelet.

Step 11

Replicate this technique by following Step 2.

Step 12

Thread both pieces of leather through the slider and tie a knot, securing the rivioli setting.

Step 13

Place a Swarovski Elements Chaton into the first cup of the bracelet setting. When in place, use pliers to close the teeth on the setting.  Repeat until you have added a crystal chaton to each setting cup.

Step 14

Glue the cord ends on to the leather cord.
