Bracelet made of PRECIOSA Cornelian Star seed beads

You can make simple, cord or also minimalist bracelets using this tutorial. Just string some PRECIOSA Cornelian Star seed beads, which are unique in the world, onto a cord. This seed bead is distinguished by a white intermediate layer in the shape of a six-pointed star, where the points of the white core shine with a transparent overlay and whose shadows create the impression of delicate stripes. These bracelets will go perfectly with every outfit.

String 1x KH onto each end of the cord. Tie a knot 4 cm from the metal part. Cut off any excess cord about 3 – 5 mm from the knot.


Putting the bracelet on your wrist

Loosen one of the cord loops. The loop can be enlarged and the KH moved up to the metal part. Slide it onto your wrist. Hold the KH next to the metal part with the fingers on the hand with the bracelet. Hold the metal part with the fingers of the other hand. Pull on the cord behind the KH and tighten. This is how to handle both cord loops. When removing the bracelet, slowly release the fingers on the hand without the bracelet and pull the bracelet over your hand.
