This year, small delicate bracelets are – again – a huge summer success, and they come in numerous variations and colours.

Here we show you a few examples of what you can do, braid or knot with beads and cord.

We used the following materials to assemble this bracelet:

You will find a step-by-step instruction on how to make this bracelet in our earlier blog article Delica jewellery with locking bead.  Once you are done, you can apply a drop of glue on the knots on the ends of the silk thread so they will not open up again. Silk thread has got a smooth surface and cannot be melted like nylon or polyester.

Braided bracelet with tassels

We used the following materials to assemble this bracelet:

First, knot the cords to one of the closed rings. Then, you string the chosen crystals. For our bracelet we took a random amount of crystals in random colours. Stringing the crystals becomes more easy if you melt the ends of the polyester cords carefully with a lighter. They harden when they cool down and can be used like a needle afterwards.

Now you braid the cords, weaving the crystals into the plait. Once the bracelet has got the right length, you knot the cord ends to the second closed ring. After that, you fasten one tassel on each closed ring with a jumpring

We do not want the knots to open up again that is why we burn the polyester carefully in order to melt it. Alternatively, you can apply a bit of adhesive on the knots. Finally, you cut the excess cord.

You close the bracelet by tying a knot.

ou need the following materials to assemble this bracelet:

First, you knot three cords to one of the closed rings. Then, you fasten a jumpring to each of the pendants and slide them on the cords.

Now you braid the cords, weaving the pendants into the plait. Once the bracelet has got the right length, you knot the cord ends to the second closed ring. After that, you fasten one tassel on each closed ring with a jumpring.  Apply a drop of glue on each of the knots to prevent them from opening up again.

Finally, you cut the excess cord. You close the bracelet by tying a knot.
