Follow the step on how to make vibrant 'Rainbow Rockpool' Sale Make bracelet, using bright colour shell chips with a kumihimo braid.

If  you have not created a kumihimo braid before you will also need: Kumihimo braiding disk and No Tangle Bobbins.

Step 1

Cut 4 x 1.5m strands of s-lon and set up your board for an 8 strand braid. The middle of each strand should cross over the centre of your board.

Step 2

Thread 20 shell chips on to each of the strands.

Step 3

Create a 3/4 of a centimeter of unbeaded braid then add a bead each time you work with a strand. When you reach the desired length create another 3/4 of a centimeter of unbeaded braid.

Step 4

Before taking off the board add a dab of glue on the treads and then cut off and trim so the it will fit into your clasp.

Step 5

Glue the ends in to the cord ends (it is a tight fit so try it before adding the glue) to finish.
