Retired - Jade Meditation Bracelet

PROJECT B7072
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Beginner
A TierraCast guru bead and buddha charm turn a stretch bracelet of rich jade beads into a gentle reminder to stop and breathe.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 7 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the number of jade beads and TierraCast spacers on either side of the guru bead.
  1. Cut 1 foot of stretch cord with flush cutters. Place a bead stopper at one end.
  2. Please watch our video on how to make a stretch bracelet.
  3. String 2 jade beads, and 1 TierraCast spacer. Repeat this pattern 3 more times. Then string 2 more jade beads. String 1 TierraCast guru bead. String 2 jade beads, and 1 TierraCast spacer. Repeat this pattern 3 more times. Then string 2 more jade beads.
  4. Tie off the bracelet as shown in the video. Add Hypo Cement glue to the knot.
  5. Take 1 silver crimp bead cover and place it around the knot in the stretch cord. Gently close the crimp bead cover with flat nose pliers.
  6. Take 1 eye pin. Open the looped end the same way you would open a jump ring. Attach it to the loop at the bottom of the TierraCast guru bead. Close the loop.
  7. String 1 jade bead onto the eye pin and make a simple wire loop, oriented perpendicular to the original loop (see photo for reference).
  8. Open the wire loop you made in the previous step. Slide on the loop of the TierraCast buddha charm. Close the loop. Enjoy your bracelet!
