Creating natural stone bracelets can be a great way to accessorize your jewelry collection. There are a few basic techniques to create a unique piece of jewelry. The first step is to choose a suitable stone for your bracelet. You can find stones in various shapes, colors and designs.

Next, you need to prepare the wire. Wire comes in many different colors, gauges and types. If you are making a bracelet with beads, you will need a needle and elastic cord. However, if you are only making a necklace, you can simply use a crochet hook.

Once you have your wire ready, you can start wrapping it. You can choose to wrap the wire on all sides of the stone, or just the center. Depending on how you want your bracelet to look, you can wrap it in long or short loops. For the bracelet, you should be able to wrap the wire at least 10-12 inches. After a few twists, you can cut the wire. This will give you the outline of your bracelet.

When you finish wrapping the wire, you can use the wire tail to tie the two ends together. In the end, you should have two strands of elastic cord with a 2 inch tail. Tie the knot to complete your bracelet.

To add additional stones to your bracelet, you can use a spacer. Using this method, you can make your bracelet larger, or smaller. By adding a bead to each elastic cord, you can also change the shape of your bracelet.

To keep your stones clean, you should first wash them in a warm soapy water. It is important to use a soft brush to remove any remaining dirt. You can then seal the stone with an acrylic sealer.

Afterward, you can paint the stone with vegetable oil. This will give it a nice color. But be careful not to over do it. Vegetable oil may expand the colors of your stone. Alternatively, you can use fingernail polish.

Once the paint is dry, you can apply it to the stone. Be sure to allow it to soak in for a few minutes. Also, be sure to remove the excess oil.

Finally, it is time to start adding the beads. The beads should be added one at a time. Make sure that the elastic cord is fed through each bead twice. Leaving a 2 inch tail at the other end, you can tie the ends together to secure the bracelet.

Now that you know how to make a bracelet with natural stones, you can try out different designs and styles to find the perfect one for you. You can even customize your bracelet with a special message. Remember that natural stones are not only beautiful, but they have healing properties as well.

A natural stone beaded bracelet can also serve as an excellent accessory for yoga or meditation. Using these bracelets, you can guide your body toward health and happiness.
