This is a braided version of the bracelets made famous by Pandora. It works particularly well if a colour scheme is chosen and followed through with both the beads and the braid.
– 8 warp round braid
– Use metallic embroidery thread on two warps to get a really sparkly effect. The other six warps can be cotton knitting yarn, Chinese knotting cord or petite rattail.
– Thread on the charm beads before the second end cap is put on.
– Follow through the colour scheme with a matching crystal between the end cap and the clasp and also at the end of the extension chain.
– Don’t put on too many charm beads. The braid is too pretty to hide.
