    I love the bracelet, the red coral is a beautiful stone. Did you design the bracelet using elastic or is there a closure I am not seeing? The hemetite and silver really complement the Coral.

    I love the Red Fossil Coral too!! Assuming this is on elastic, what kind do you use? I made one elastisized bracelet and it broke – beads all fell off – but the knot was intact! Figured the beads rubbed it thin in one spot? Any suggestions?

    I am sorry ladies..I forgot to add that I used two strings of .7mm stretch magic cord. The hematite spacer has 2 holes. I haven’t had any trouble with this kind of cord breaking. The only suggestion I can make is to tie the cord relatively tight so that the beads can’t move around too much.

    Stunning bracelet! I use Stretch Magic a lot and have never had any problems with it breaking. Hopefully, that will stay true! :D
