Double Bollywood

 

When we first saw the Bollywood Macrame Bracelet tutorial by Brittany Ketchan (Beadshop.com) we fell in love with the simple design and the seemingly endless color combinations of cords and beads.  

Our Latest Video Tutorial, named Double Bollywood takes this wonderful design to the next level.  Instead of one color cord per bracelet, we used two and stuck to one color bead instead of many.  The results are sooo pretty and the color combinations just as endless.  

Try mixing and matching Double Bollywood with Bollywood and create your very own  armload of treasures!  

 

Tools

Techniques Needed

Materials Needed (for one bracelet)

  • Color 1:  5 yard 0.5MM Chinese Knotting Cord 
  • Color 2:  5 yard 0.5MM Chinese Knotting Cord
  • 10 g Galvanized Duracoat 8/0 Miyuki Seed Beads

Tips & Tricks

  • Make sure to alternate sides when knotting.  i.e. If you start with the right color then the next knot should be the left color.
  • After three knots add a bead (although you can add beads whenever you want :))
  • Use a 6/0 bead to finish off the cord ends if you have trouble threading two cords through an 8/0 bead.  
  • Alternatively you can use one 8/0 seed bead on each cord end.
