INSTRUCTIONS

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

  • yellow sunflower 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads on strands #32, #1, #16 and #17
  • orange fireopal 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
