Fall Kumihimo Bracelet with Swarovski Crystal Bicones
designed byCynthia Kimura
Approximate Size7 Inches
I used sparkly Swarovski crystal bicones in fall colors to create this color block bracelet. I think the charms near the clasp add a little something special, don't you?
Swarovski Crystal are perfect for creating inspiring color palettes in your designs. Cynthia used our warm autumn shades to create a display reminiscent of leaves changing color in the fall. TierraCast leaf and tree charms add to the harvest-time feeling. See more ideas for kumihimo projects in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Use a 2-inch antique copper-plated 20 gauge eye pin to add a JBB antique copper-plated pewter end cap to the end of the cord. Once the end cap is in place, slide an olive green bicone onto the eye pin. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead. Repeat on the other end of the cord.
Attach the loop component of the TierraCast antique copper large leaf clasp set to one end of the bracelet using a 5.5mm antique copper-plated 21 gauge open jump ring. Attach a TierraCast antique copper-plated pewter bird in a tree charm to this jump ring using another jump ring.
Attach the bar component of the clasp set to the other end of the bracelet using a jump ring. Attach a TierraCast copper antique oak leaf charm to this jump ring using another jump ring. Attach a leaf charm to this jump ring using another jump ring. Repeat to create a link of three jump rings, each one holding a leaf charm.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
