Marcea's Bracelet

Designed by: Marcea Watkins

Difficulty: Expert

Rating: 0 Stars

Marcea got the idea from our Becharmed Bracelet and modified our tutorial by putting her own spin on the design.

To create this project you will also need: Kumihimo braiding board W270, kumihimo bobbins W314, needle and scissors.

Step 1

Cut 8 pieces of S-Lon cord 60cms long and tie them together in a knot at the centre of the threads.

Step 2

Place the threads through the centre of the kumihimo board making sure the knot is level with the board.

Step 3

Thread 11 purple bicones on all the threads each side of the dots at the top and bottom of the board. Tie a knot in the end of the thread to stop the beads falling off. Now repeat using the pink bicones for the remaining threads on the left and right side of the board.

Step 4

Begin braiding without any beads using each thread for 4 turns of the board. You can now start to braid using the bicones. See the related videos on how to braid with beads if you have need further guidance.

Step 5

Continue to braid until you have used all the bicones. Continue without beads for a further 2 cms. Knot all the threads together.

Step 6

Place your beaded section through the hole in the board. Add the charm carrier and make sure it sits snugly against the beaded section. Now repeat from step 3. You may need to adjust the amount of plain braids in step 5 depending on the size of charm carrier you use.

Step 7

Add some glue to the unbeaded section at each end and allow to dry. When dry cut the ends to fit inside the end caps. 

Step 8

 Glue end caps over ends of braids and allow to dry. Attach clasp and charm with split rings.
