  1. Cut two 7-1/4-inch lengths of chain.
  2. Using 6mm jump rings, attach a toggle end to one end of each chain.
  3. Attach 6mm jump rings to the other end of each chain.
  4. Cut four 50-inch lengths of cord.
  5. Bring the cord ends together and fold the cord in half. Bring the fold down through the center of the round disc.
  6. Cut a scrap piece of cord (4+ inches) and tie it onto the center fold from step 2.
  7. Align the cords as explained in the “Beaded Kumihimo” instruction booklet that came with the round disc.
  8. Using the big eye beading needle, thread 24 pink beads onto the top two and bottom two strands, 24 black beads onto the left two strands, and 24 AB beads onto the right two strands.
  9. Tie a small knot at the end of each cord to stop the beads from sliding off.
  10. Follow the beaded instructions that came with the disc. Braid the cord 3/4 inches before adding the beads.
    *This section will have a trinkette bead on it and a cord end attached to it.
  11. Continue braiding with beads until all beads have been woven into the braid.
  12. Braid a 3/4-inch tail after all of the beads have been braided in. Remove the cords from the disc and tie them into a tight single knot.
  13. Thread a trinkette bead onto the tail, sliding the bead over the knot. Apply glue to the small knot and attach a fold over cord end.
  14. At the 3/4-inch braided tail, remove the scrap thread and thread on a trinkette bead. Then apply a dot of glue and attach a fold over cord end.
    *Allow the glue to dry according to manufacturer instructions (2+ hours).
  15. Attach the fold over cord ends to the jump rings from step 3.

When you first look at the list of materials, you may think it's too much and skip on by. Please don't! Check your bead stash and read thru the directions and I am sure you can substitute a few things here and there. It's not a hard project and it's very pretty!
