Green Aventurine for Spring
Green Aventurine is on of my favorite semiprecious stones. It
helps with stress and we all need a little stressful relief every once in a while. The
little red ones next are garnet chips. Aren't they pretty? Let's just sit here for a
moment and appreciate the beautiful deep red color. What semiprecious stone
speaks to you the most?
When I was little I loved them all. I even had a small rock
collection. I loved examining each one to see what was hidden in them. I still can't
get enough of them. Now, I make jewelry with them. Let's get started with this
tutorial. You won't need much and it's super easy to make.
Green Aventurine beads
Stretchy jewelry string.
Brush on nail glue
Note: You can get all of these these things at your local bead store or craft store.
The nail glue you can get at any retail store.
Step 1: measure your wrist to make sure you have enough string and cut the string.
Step 2: Sting the Green Aventurine until you are happy with the amount.
Remember, not to put to many or you won't have room for the other beads.
Step 3: Add the Garnet then the glass pearls. Test it out around your wrist
before you tie it.
Step4: Tie the string in a know a few times. And then brush the glue onto
the knot to make sure it doesn't come untied. Be careful and don't touch to glue. Let
it dry for a few hours and now you have a beautiful stretch bracelet to wear.
There you have it super easy and fun to make. I would love to see your finished
projects on Instagram. Tag droposweetness to share you finished projects. Have a
