Just put this bracelet together. Pretty! I like having a mix of more involved projects and simple ones like this that can be done at my desk when I need a quick stress-reliever break.

I was so excited to start this project I started as soon as I opened the box. All was well until I hit the labradorite - the elastic WOULD NOT go through the holes. I tried poking it by hand for about 20 minutes, then with a needle, but it was like trying to put toothpaste back into the tube. The needle then split the elastic, so I had to trim the end off. I then tried to poke the needle alone through the labradorite to see if there was an obstruction and the needle got stuck halfway. When I pulled the needle back out, the stone broke! I'm so sad. It would have been such a beautiful bracelet.

So happy you enjoyed making the bracelet @msgcahill! Did your sister manage to get her hands on it?

I've managed to hide it from her but it's only a matter of time! For now I've been distracting her with the necklace from this set!

I love how there's always one project I can do the night I get my box. Easy, and no mess. Instant For The Makers Gratification! Also, I'm soon going to need extra arms for these bracelets stacks you guys have made me such a fool for.

Oh and I forgot the tip I came here to add in the midst of my effusive praise. I used to make a lot of bracelets like these, and I found that they held up better if you try to snake the ends back through a few beads on either side after tying the knots, then trim the extra. It just helps not to have to trim so close to the knot with stretchy cord.

Happy to hear it @sarahyok! One can never have too many bracelets...at least that's what we think! Good tip as well. Thanks for adding!
