Dark Blue Calm Bracelet

PROJECT B2356
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This multi-wrap bracelet features a knotted design of silver Czech Glass Etched Beads with dark blue griffin silk.
Instructions
Please see below for sizing info.
  1. Begin by threading the silk up and over the thread protector. String on one loop of the magnetic clasp. Leave a tail of about 3 inches on the end without the needle. Tie an overhand knot with both cords. Double knot this knot. Place a dab of GS Hypo Cement to the knot. Add a crimp cover. Trim the short tail.
  2. Next, you will be knotting the beads, using the same technique used in pearl knotting. Begin with one knot. Then string on four 2mm beads with knots in between. Then string one 2mm bead, one 4mm bead and one 2mm bead, without knots in between. Make one knot after all three beads. Now, simply repeat this pattern. The silk will have a little give to it. If you repeat this pattern approximately 30 times, you will have a four wrap bracelet that fits a 6.25 inch wrist.
  3. Once you have reached your desired length, repeat the first step to finish the bracelet in the same manner.
  4. Please allow the bracelet to dry at least 24 hours before wearing the allow the glue to dry for maximum bond.
