These tranquil charms and hand-dyed silk cords are a match made in heaven! This design is so easy to create and can be customised to your heart's content.
In this jewellery making kit, we have given the product options to make one bracelet with a turquoise cord and lotus flower charm - you can however customise your kit and make as many as you desire with your favourite charms.
As hole sizes in charms can sometimes vary a little we'd suggest you might also include our smallest jump rings (SF1) so you can attach these to the charm and then the larger jump ring if the charm doesn't fit straight onto the larger ring.
Start by cutting the silk cord to your desired length - remember to take into account the crimp ends and bolt ring. In the image of our design, you can see we have wrapped our silk cord multiple times, but the amount of wraps is completely up to you.
Next, thread one end of the silk cord into the crimp.
Use snipe nose pliers to squeeze the crimp together around the middle. This will secure your cord in place – repeat on the other end.
Next, use your snipe nose pliers to open the loop of the bolt ring and attach it to the loop of one of the crimp ends - this will depend on the side you prefer to have the clasp.
Close the loop of the bolt ring once attached.
Using your pliers again, open a jump ring and attach the charm.
Close the jump ring around the cord.
Your bracelet is now finished! You can add as many charms as you wish.
Make the design your own by choosing your favourite charms to use with the silk cords.
