Beautiful Beadelle crystal beads and metal beads dance back and forth in this sparkly bracelet. The double shambhala look is actually just wrapped, and works up very quickly. Add a little shimmer to your favorite look!
These instructions will create a finished bracelet that will adjust from about 6.5" to 7.5". To lengthen or shorten your bracelet, change the finished length of the middle cords.
- Before you begin, watch the video: How to Make a Zig Zag Double Shambhala Bracelet. This video will walk you through the steps for making the bracelet.
- Cut one 6' and one 3' length of 1.5mm black waxed cotton cord.
- Fold the 3' length in half. Place the middle of the 6' length behind the top of the folded piece and tie a macrame square knot about 1" from the top where it's folded. Secure the top loop to your work surface. Tie 5 more square knots.
- String one 10mm 22k gold plated bead, one 10mm emerald candy bead, 1 gold bead, 1 emerald bead, and 1 gold bead onto each of your middle strands. Loosely secure the bottom of the strands to your work surface.
- Use the longer outside strands to wrap around the beads as demonstrated in the video.
- Release the bottom of the strands from your work surface. Tie 6 square knots after the beaded section.
- Finish the macrame square knotting with an overhand knot on the backside, secured with E6000 glue. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly before continuing.
- Trim the ends about 5" from the end of the knotting (adjust for sizing) and tie an overhand knot near each end.
- To close, bring one of the loose end strands through the loop at the top, then tie the loose ends into a bow.
