Retired - Chelsea Bracelet

PROJECT B1021
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
An elegant, sparkly Beadelle crystal pave ring is the focal piece in this delicate knotted bracelet. It's a feminine, subtle way to wear the Shambhala style, and adds a nice touch to any look.
Instructions
  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How to Make a Shambhala Bracelet, Part I: Macrame Square Knots.
  2. Begin by cutting two 4' lengths and two 18" lengths of size 18 black Super-Lon nylon cord.
  3. Take one 4' length and one 18" length and fold them each in half, with the center folds together. Insert the folded ends of your cord down through a gunmetal plated 22 x 16mm Beadelle crystal pave oval ring so that a loop is formed coming out the bottom of the ring. Then bring the ends of the cord (all four pieces) through the loop and pull tight to form a larks head knot.
  4. Use the longer cords to tie square knots onto the shorter cords. Continue until the knotting measures about 2 1/4" and then finish off your knotting as demonstrated in this video. Make sure to add a dab of E6000 into the knot and trim the outside cords close after the glue dries.
  5. Repeat this process with the other lengths of cord on the other side of the ring.
  6. Measure about 3" from the end of the knotting and tie the inner cords together in an overhand knot on each side.
  7. Then use one of the longer scraps of cord to create a sliding knot clasp with four square knots as demonstrated in this video. (Make sure to add a dab of E6000 into the knot and trim the cords close after the glue dries.)
