This bracelet makes me wish I was on a tropical island.
I have been experimenting with the many different type of cords John Bead has . These are the colours I chose from the Cotton Wax Cord collection.
Wax cord is available in many colours and you can buy it flat or round. My set is the round cord 1mm.
I am using the classic set up for a flat braid using the instructions you receive in the Kumihimo square disk/plate kit.
The only thing I did different was that I attached my end to this vintage bead. It gave me a finished end with no additional work after I finished the braid.
This braid was a pleasure to make!
Cotton Wax Cord is very different from rattail. I did not try to make my knots super tight. I wanted this bracelet to be lighter. I am wearing it right now and it is practically weightless.
