As a graceful nod to the free-spirited Bohemian trend, we created a set of beautiful bracelets in softly muted hues: smoky quartz, warm gold, smoked topaz, antique brass, rose gold amber and iridescent green. We added the sparkle of Swarovski and the luster of Pyrite, and some swing with metal chain and thread tassels. The symbolism and metaphysical properties are protection.

Measure your wrist, and cut Stretch Magic an extra four inches to give you enough cord to easily tie the knot. The example designs were created for a 6" wrist. You may need to add or subtract beads to your designs.
Beads in this series are generally strung into sets of three.
Carefully slide four segments of tassel onto an 8" section of wire. Loop the segments together, and create a loop at the top. Use the extra wire to create an organic wrap over the top of the secure connection.
Use 3 seed beads in the area of the bracelet holding the tassel.
Optional: Use a dot of glue to secure knot in Stretch Magic cord.
Use a crimp cover to hide the knot.
It can be difficult to get the lid onto the narrow tip of the Hypo Cement. To minimize this stress, prepare a batch of bracelets for gluing at one time, rather than gluing them individually.
