Bliss

Project Info:

Level: Beginner

Estimated time: 1 Hour per bracelet

Project by Brittany Ketcham
Samples by Robin Tobias

“Bliss” can best be described as a state of divine happiness. When reading about the meaning of the color pink, we discover how it is a symbol of unconditional love and compassion. Why not surround ourselves in rosy shades of pink and allow mindfulness and compassion to guide our daily actions? Chances are joy may find an easy path to our door.

With just 4 tubes of seed beads and 5 colors of Chinese Knotting Cord, you can make 15 bracelets! Add a few organza bags and think about the smiles on your friends’ faces when you gift them some Bliss! How perfect.

See the Project Map below for a Bird’s Eye View of what beads are paired with what cord. Bollywood is a video project. Be sure to click on the VIDEO tab above to watch. We do not have a companion handout for Bollywood, however these techniques are helpful to review, if you’re new to Bollywood:
Please note: We no longer sell Thread Zaps, which Brittany demonstrates in the video. You can secure your knots with GS Hypo-tube Cement and cut the excess cord with Thread Snips or Cutters.

Project Map

Begin by cutting your base CKC 2 yards. Cut your macramé CKC 2 yards. When you're ready, cut 1/2 yard of CKC to make your fish tail adjustable knot. This design uses two sizes of Miyuki seed beads (6/0 and 8/0). In the video, Brittany uses 8/0 metal beads for the entire project, including the tails. We used 6/0 Miyuki beads for the tails because the hole size fits better. 

* Miyuki Bead Factory has given 6-155FR the name: Matte Trans. Pale Pink AB 6/0 and 8-155FR: Matte Trans. Light Tea Rose AB 8/0 but they are the same color and have the same coating. The codes are correct.
