Mineral Heart Tigereye Bracelet

Difficulty: Expert


Experiment with beaded kumihimo to create the Mineral Heart Tiger Eye Bracelet. If you have not created a kumihimo braid before you will also need: Kumihimo braiding disk No Tangle Bobbins, Needle, thread.

Step 1

Cut 8 strands of s-lon and set up your board for an 8 strand braid.

Step 2

Thread 28 sterling silver beads, 7 chip beads and 28 sterling silver beads on to each horizontal strand. Repeat on 2 of the vertical strands, but replace the sterling silver with rose gold beads on 2 of the strands. Make sure these 2 are diagonally opposite each other, and add the charm to one of these strands in the centre.

Step 3

Create a few cms of unbeaded braid then add a bead each time you work with a strand. When you reach the charm, add it to the braiding along with one chip bead. Once you have used all the beads braid for a few cms before taking off the board and tying the strands together.

Step 4

Secure the ends with a needle and thread and glue in to the clasp to finish.
