For weaving bracelet shamballa suitable waxedA cord or a thin leather cord. As their replacement, you can use threads floss in 6 additions, but the product of them will not be so expressive and quality.


Pick up the beads. The diameter of their hole must be large enough to allow it to pass through the cord freely. The shape of the beads does not matter. The classic shamballa bracelet is made of round beads, but it is also suitable for square or fantasy, for example, in the form of a skull. Their number can vary from your desire or from how many beads are available.


Cut two strings. One length is 1 m 20 cm, the second is 60 cm. One end of the short cord is tied with a tight knot. Place the cord vertically with the knot facing down. This will be the basis of the bracelet (also called a "lazy" cord).


Put a long cord about 20 cm above the knot and tie it around the base, and its ends should be equal in length.


Next, tie a flat square knot. Put the left part of the working cord to the right and place it on the right side. Then take the right end and turn it to the left under the base cord and enter into the resulting loop. Tighten the knot.

Make a shamballa clasp. To do this, fold the 2 ends of the base cord together and tie them with the remaining piece of the work lace. For fastening it is enough to make 12-14 nodules. At the last, apply a little glue, allow it to dry and cut off excess ends. The "lazy" cord should be tightened without any effort.


String on both ends of the bracelet on 1 bead of smaller diameter and tie them with a simple knot. Secure it with glue and cut off excess.
