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!

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
