Sun-Kissed Sands Bracelet


About this design:

I used Lima's new waxed nylon cord for this shimmering sandy-toned bracelet. I love this look, it reminds me of a fish net.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need waxed nylon cord, a strand of Czech glass 6mm druks/rounds, an arca shell focal, and a fish bone charm.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
You will need 3 18" pieces of the waxed nylon, knot them together at the top. Leave some extra at the top of our knot. I used a clipboard to hold my cords in place.
Step 2:
Start a braid and add a bead, a bead should go wherever the arch of the braid is, no knotting required.
Step 3:
Keep braiding and adding beads to your desired length.
Step 4:
Tie a knot or square knot to finish off the braid. Attach your clasp. Clean any frayed edges and secure your knots by burning them slightly with a lighter.

    Very, very cool! I love those etched druks in this design! The shell is the perfect touch to help anchor the bracelet. :)
