Designer Inspired Super Easy White Agate Stretch Bracelet

White Agate Stretch Bracelet

I mentioned in my previous post that I was seeing a couple of friends this week and like to bring them something on our all too rare get togethers. One friend is an uber fashionista .Simple but high end style.

I love the Simon Sebbag stretch bracelets I’ve seen at Nordstrom. If you’re not familiar with them :
which remind me of her so I decided to do my own version. The original uses all of the same stone bead with one or two accent beads.

White Agate Bracelet

Got my supplies out. For this you will need:
  • Stretchy Cord
  • Stone Beads ( I used white agate)
  • Focal Bead ( I originally planned to use this stainless mesh bead but it didn’t look right so you’ll see what I switched to after I took the picture)
  • Small silver beads

Measure a length of your stretchy cord. I generally do about 9-10 inches.

Stretchy Cord Measurement

String your beads on. This is THE perfect project for anyone who wants to make jewelry but doesn’t want to invest in tools. You can use what you have on hand. Ruler, binder clips, scissors.

Agate and Bronzite

You can see here what I swapped out for the stainless bead. A bronzite bead with two small silver beads.
Once you’re satisfied that you have the right length to go around your wrist ( you want it to fit comfortably, not too tight) then you can tie off your ends and I always add a dab of super glue to the knot then tie once more.

Even using real stone and silver beads my materials were a fraction of the cost of my inspiration bracelets.
