Instructions:

  1. Cut four 49-inch lengths of gold metallic cord.
     
  2. Bring the cord ends together and fold in half. Bring the fold down through the center of the round disc.
     
  3. Cut a scrap piece of cord (4+ inches) and tie it onto the center fold from step 2.
     
  4. Align the cords as explained in the “Beaded Kumihimo” instruction booklet that came with the round disc.
     
  5. Using the big eye beading needle, thread four wood, three gold, one teal, three wood, three gold, one wood, three teal, three gold, one wood, two gold, four teal, three gold, and three wood beads onto each strand.
    *This makes an 8-inch bracelet with cord ends and lobster claw clasp. Use fewer or more beads on each of the eight cords to decrease or increase the overall length.
     
  6. Wind each of the eight cords (with beads) onto a bobbin and close.
     
  7. Follow the beaded instructions that came with the disc. Braid the cord 1/2 inch before adding the beads.
    *This section will be inserted into the clasp.
     
  8. Braid a 1/4-inch tail after all of the beads have been braided in. Remove the cords from the bobbins and from the disc and tie them into a single knot. Remove the scrap cord from the other end.
     
  9. Trim the excess cord. Insert an eye pin into each end section of the braid so the pins face out the ends of the braid. Then apply glue to the ends of the cords and slide the cord ends on, threading the eye pin shaft through the hole.
     
  10. Form a loop. Use 4mm jump rings to attach a lobster claw clasp to one end and a length of extender chain to the other end.
    *Allow the glue to dry according to manufacturer instructions (2+ hours).

My project photo will not upload to you. How else can I forward it. I took the photo with my sMsung galaxy camera, note says it's too big!

Any chance to get a bit more advice or photos on the process of getting the eye pin into the ends?
