Shamballa Bracelet

Hi Everyone!  This week I have a fairly simple bracelet project for you.  I really love this for layering with other bracelets and watches.  It's all about the arm candy right now!

Items Needed For This Project:
  • Beads:  I found the Shamballa style at Wal Mart and Michaels.  Hobby Lobby does NOT carry these beads.  However, this bracelet can be made with a variety of beads.  I used (7) 14mm beads for this bracelet.
  • String/Cording:  A waxed string is best.  I used a 1.2mm string.  The smaller the string the smaller the knots.  I wouldn't recomment the smaller size string unless you are planning to use smaller beads. You need about 3.5 yards per bracelet.
  • Glue:  I used super glue.  You can use jewelry glue as well but it will take longer to dry.  Make sure and read the directions for the glue you choose.  
  • Misc:  Scissors, tape, 2 small beads for tips of string. 

Happy Bracelet making!
