Project Map

Project by Beadshop Staff
Sample by Drea Carbone


Using the same color palette as her Magdalena Bollywood Necklace, Drea needed a Bollywood Stack to match! Follow along with our video for Rockport above, the same techniques are used! Also inspired by Friday Kahlo, this set of five hemp Bollywood Bracelets feature two styles of beaded macramé: two bracelets have "one side" beading and three have "two side" beading. That means you either add beads from one macramé strand only, giving a zig-zag/off-center look, or add beads on both macramé strands to have them sitting directly across from each other on your base strands. Add charms, connectors, beads, etc to your liking...have fun!

Make self-needles using GS Hypo Cement to make stringing 8/0s on a breeze. When finishing, use the same glue but add carefully to your final knots to ensure the knots only are glued...you don't want to glue the base cords below, those need to glide through so the bracelets are adjustable!

Check out our past Bollywood videos for the how-to. This quick and easy project whips up in no time! Like what you see? Sign up for our Newsletter to learn about all our new projects, as well as updates on LIVE broadcasts, new product, and of course…SALES!
