InspirationFX: Knotty Koi


Get your creative juices flowing

Knotty Koi
by: Rochelle Kilmer
I wanted to make a simple bracelet that would be nice to wear through the summer. Light colours lead me to the jade. Seeing the new fish clasp inspired a watery theme. The rest all fell into place, with a splash!

How to:

  • Put one end of the leather in the end clasp and squeeze shut.
  • Put a basic square knot as tight as you wish
  • Place a jade barrel tube, then another knot after
  • Continue in the pattern of 8 mm round jade, spirally swirls spacers, and big hole pearls, with knots in between
  • Finish with a knot and squeeze the end over the leather
  • You can use the fish clasp as the focal for your new bracelet.
