I had a really good response to this post on some shamballa bracelets I made. So I thought I would do a how to post to show how they are made.
You will need:
- 9-11 beads size 8-12mm
- 2 smaller beads (6-8mm)
- 30cm nylon thread, 0.8mm thick
- 1m plus 60cm nylon thread, 1.2mm thick
Check you can thread the beads onto the thin thread before you begin!
The bracelet is made by tying a series of “square” knots around the central thread. To begin, tie a knot at the end of the short, thin thread around a safety pin and pin it to something like a cushion to hold it in place. This is the central thread.
