DIY Magnesite and Silver Bracelet Stack


The  magnesite bead strands are my favorite this summer from our bead department. I just love the turquoise color and the variety of shapes they come in. I decided to do a simple set of bracelets using Stretch Magic so they are easy to put on and fit comfortably without dangling. These were so easy to create!


Supplies: 
Magnesite Bead Strands
Silver Findings
Stretch Magic




Directions:
  1. Once you have chosen your bead shapes and findings, cut them off the strands and open the packages.
  2. Lay out 5 rows of design - a tried to create each one to be a different design and bead pattern.
  3. Once you are happy with the look of each strand you can begin building the bracelet.
  4. Cut a piece of Stretch Magic that is much larger than you wrist. ( It helps to tie a knot at the end )
  5. begin stringing your beads in the pattern laid out. 
  6. When all beads are on the cord measure to make sure it will fit your wrist correctly.
  7. Now tie both ends together. (You can glue the knot for if you want to make sure it does not open.)
  8. Continue with the rest of the bracelets in the same order.
Design Option 2:
Create these bracelets on wire and add a toggle clasp to each.
You can wear all 5 bracelets together at once, or mix and match a smaller number to create a variety of looks.
