Add some color to your pewter thread bracelets with colored cord.

Saamibracelets

Join our blog and add some color to your pewter thread bracelets.  I love the look of traditional pewter thread braids but sometimes I long for a little variation to really make the materials pop.  I usually wear several bracelets at a time and often I can color coordinate my selection with what I’m wearing. We recently added a rich rainbow of 1.00mm round cowhide leather cord to our inventory at saamisupplies.com.  Follow the steps in this project to brighten you bracelets and your day.

Double Four Braid Pewter Thread Bracelet with 1.00 Round Leather Colored Cord

Begin by cutting 4 pieces of 0.35mm pewter thread approximately 18 inches long each.  Cut one 18 inch section of 1.00mm  round leather cord.

Take 2 pieces of pewter thread and place a strand on either side of your leather cord.  These will be your borders.  Double the entire piece in half on the end of an open paper clip attached to your table clamp.  Make sure to keep everything flat.  It’s a bit of a challenge so don’t be discouraged if it seems like you need another set of hands to get everything positioned properly.

Double your remaining 2 strands of pewter thread over the end of the paper clip and you are ready to start braiding.

Proceed to braid as you would for the double four-strand pewter thread bracelet project in our previous post this past week.

You should end up with a 6.5 – 6.75 inch finished braid.  You can sew the braid to a leather strip at this point or simply cap the end with a button and loop for a different look.

It’s hard to believe that the addition of color can make this braid look so different.  You can also try using round polyester cord or silk beading cord for variety.  I’ve had students use flat strips of suede or reindeer hide and even ribbon!  Remember to use materials at least 1.00mm wide so your material doesn’t disappear  between the sections of your pewter thread.

Don’t forget to join our blog and stay tuned for another exciting project next week. Visit www.saamisupplies.com for everything you need to fuel your creativity!
