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 a piece of cupchain. The cupchain should contain a total of 36 crystal cups. Cut a piece of suede cord measuring 1meter. Fold suede cord in half and place in the gap between the 1st and 2nd cup, on bracelet bar. 

Step 2

Secure by tying a knot on the underside.  

Step 3

Starting with one cord, wrap in an anti-clockwise direction going between each cup. 

Step 4

Keep going until the last cup. 

Step 5

Tie the cord to secure the end. 

Step 6

Start wrapping the other half of the cord tightly but go in the opposite direction this time (clockwise so it crosses over). 

Step 7

Keep wrapping until you reach the last cup. Undo the original knot (from step 5).

Step 8

Secure by tying both pieces of suede together in a tight knot on the underside. 

Step 9

Trim off all excess suede cord (for extra security add a dab of nail varnish).
