Gemstone Rondelle Bracelet Stacks


About this design:

Bracelet stacks using gemstone rondelles & focals.

Gemstone Rondelles, Gold Czech glass spacer beads, Tiny Pewter Spacer Beads, Gold Cowrie Shell, Lava Rock 6mm, Hand Woven Focal, Irish Waxed Linen, 3-1 Link, Jump Ring, Lobster Clasp


Additional Images:

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  Step 1:
Tie your chosen length of waxed linen to each loop of the TierraCast 3-1 link- so three pieces of waxed linen of equal lengths. Make sure to use more waxed linen than you think you'll need to ensure you have enough length to make secure knots.
  Step 2:
On the first strand, I used the black gold amazonite rondelles. String on 6 rondelles, and then a gold spacer. Repeat 2 more times and slide on the gold cowry shell. Then slide on 3 more sets of rondelles and spacers. Tie a knot at the end and tie to the other end of the clasp.
  Step 3:
On the next strand I used 9 green aventurine rondelles with a sliver spacer in between each. Make sure to tie a knot on both sides of the beads so they remain in the middle of the strand. Attach the end to the other clasp.
Step 4:
On the third strand I used Fancy Jasper rondelles and a beaded link in the middle, following the same steps as step 2.
When your finished, apply a small drop of glue to all of the knots. Attach a jump ring & lobster clasp to the 3-1 link.
Step 5:
For the Lotus bracelet, take one piece of black waxed linen, Tie the end to a jump ring with a secure knot. String on 1 round 6mm lava rock, a silver spacer, 1 lava rock, 1 spacer, 4 lava rocks, 1 spacer, 5 dalamtion jasper rondelles, and a bail. repeat the same pattern on the other side of the bail. Tie the other end of the waxed linen to a jump ring. Secure all knots with a small drop of glue. Attach the lotus charm to the bail with a jump ring.
Step 6:
For the last bracelet, I used the picture jasper rondelles with a piece of brown waxed linen following the steps from step 2.
