INSTRUCTIONS

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

  • on each of your standard 8 strands (that's #32, #1, #8, #9, #16, #17, #24 & #25), thread:
  • 3 x padparadscha 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads
  • 3 x rose 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads
  • 3 x light rose 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads
  • 3 x violet 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads
  • 3 x provence lavender 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads
  • 3 x light sapphire 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads
  • 3 x light azore 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads
  • 3 x chrysolite 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads
  • 3 x jonquil 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads
  • for a bracelet, we used a total of 27 beads on each strand (this creates a 16cm 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, we used about 0.6m per strand (ie about 4.8m total)
  • size #6 nylon cord produces a 2.2mm "plain braid", fits well into 2.7mm glue in leather ends
