Charm Bead Bracelet

kumihimo jewellery round braid bracelet


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.
