Shamballa bracelet with seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand

These Buddhism inspired bracelets have recently become a huge trend and a popular fashion accessory among celebrities and media stars.



Most Shamballa bracelets are made of waxed linen or leather cords onto which beads of various materials and colours are strung and secured with individual simple, differently oriented knots. This technique was formerly also known as knotting. The bracelets can be adapted to the required wrist size by tightening or loosening the cords which are also finished with beads.

These bracelets are relatively simple to make and PRECIOSA ORNELA therefore offers you inspiration to make your own Shamballa bracelets, which are suitable for men and women who have a wide range of interests and fashion styles, using beads and seed beads from the PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Beads brand. The production of one bracelet requires 2 m of 1 mm thick cord or leather and beads or seed beads with holes which conform to the thickness of the cord.
