Rainbow Obsidian Beauty

About this design:

I created this bracelet out of rainbow obsidian domed squares and Swarovski crystals. My sister wants me to make her a smaller version for her tiny wrist! :)

    I love the various shades in rainbow obsidian — unfortunately, they don’t show up very well in the photos.

    Lynn, how did you find using the Strech Magic? I know I should add more strechy things to my inventory- I am sure I would if they looked like this!

    You’re so sweet, Lorrie — thanks! I love using Stretch Magic and haven’t had any problems with it. I only double tie my knots — I don’t glue them — and they’ve never broken (so far!). :D I’ve used it for bracelets and lightweight necklaces.

    Thanks so much, Violet & Alice! :D

    I’ve not had good luck either with the .5mm, Violet. So far I’ve used .7mm and 1mm.

    Lorrie, I tie a double overhand knot for my stretchies.

    I have found that “little ole ladies” and / or people buying for “little ole ladies” like the stretch becuz they don’t have to have help putting them on….BTW this is gorgeous..and I bet in person it will put your eyes out!!
