INSTRUCTIONS

This project works with an 8 warp round braid and beads. We have used a mix of purple velvet, tanzanite, provence lavender and crystal AB Swarovski 4mm bicone beads. Use the following pattern information and work with our beaded kumihimo project to recreate this project on your own!

  • purple velvet 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads on strands #32 and #16
  • tanzanite 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads on strands #1 and #17
  • provence lavender 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads on strands #8 and #24
  • crystal AB 4mm bicone Swarovski crystal beads on strands #9 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
