Mineral Monochrome Bracelet

Designed by: Laura

Difficulty: Expert


Mix semi precious chip beads to create this beautiful monochrome 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 30 chip beads on to each strand. To create the pattern, thread one colour on to the strands that sit vertically as you look at the board and another colour on to the strands that sit horizontally.

Step 3

Create a few cms of unbeaded braid then add a bead each time you work with a strand. 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.
