INSTRUCTIONS

This project works with an 8 warp round braid and beads. We have used a mix of light siam red and fern green Swarovski 4mm bicone beads. Use the following pattern information and work with our beaded kumihimo project to recreate this project on your own!

  • fern green 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads on strands #32, #1, #16 and #17
  • light siam red 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads on strands #8, #9, #24 and #25
  • for a bracelet, we used 28 beads on each strand (this creates a 16.5cm beaded section - every extra bead added to a strand adds about 0.5cm to the beaded length)
  • size #6 nylon cord works well with these beads
  • size #6 nylon cord produces a 2.2mm "plain braid", fits well into 2.7mm glue in leather ends
