- Beaming Neon Pink Infinity Loop Bracelet
Fold your chain in half. Use one pair of flat nosed pliers to hold the centre link near the join, use the other pair to twist the link open. Discard this link. Repeat with these two lengths to create four equal lengths of chain.
Cut 60cm of cord from your thread and set aside to be used later. Fold the remaining length in half and cut at the fold. Fold one of these new lengths in half and pass the fold through one of the loops on the infinity loop connector. Make sure that you are passing through from the coloured side to the silver side. Thread a length of chain onto each free end, then pass the free ends through the loop created by your cord and pull to create a larks head knot. Take your time pulling this knot tight to make sure that it is not twisted.
Hold your loop and chain taut. Make sure that your chain is not twisted. Pass the cord ends through the chain links directly below. Cross the right hand cord over to the left hand piece of chain and pass down through the next empty chain link. From underneath, cross the cord over to the left hand piece of chain, skip a link and pass up through the next link. Repeat along the length of chain until you have 6 crossover sections.
Cross the right hand cord over to the left hand piece of chain and pass down though the next empty chain link. From underneath, cross the cord over to the right hand piece of chain and pass through the next empty chain link. Continue in this manner to create 6 crosses over the chain.
Using your flat nosed pliers, remove the unused lengths of chain by opening the link as before. Thread both ends through a silver bead. You will find it easier if you trim one end diagonally. Thread a bead onto each end and tie a knot. Don’t worry about evening up the lengths right now.
Repeat steps 2 to 5 to complete the chain wraps on the other side of the loop.
Place the bracelet onto a bead mat or cushion. Lay the ends so that they are resting parallel to each other as shown. Secure the bracelet to your mat or cushion with pins. Take your 60cm length of cord set aside earlier and pass under the parallel cords (now referred to as lazy threads) and centralise this thread.
Pass the right hand thread over the lazy threads. Take the left hand thread (your working thread) over the right hand thread, under the lazy threads and up through the loop created by the right hand thread. Keep hold of your working thread, this will make it easier to know which step you are on. Pull to tighten the knot.
Pass the left hand thread over the lazy threads. Take the right hand thread (your working thread) over the left hand thread, under the lazy threads and up through the loop created by the left hand thread. Pull to tighten the knot. This is a complete square knot.
Repeat steps 8 to 9 to form 5 complete square knots. Trim the threads close to the knot and dab with superglue. Leave to dry. Slide the beads up the cord, trim the free ends to an even length and tie into a knot.
