After braiding, knotting, and friendship bracelet-ing my way for summer, it’s time to retire my armful of crazy friendship bracelets and bright colors for just a bit more sophistication. As much as I love neons and brights, I’m craving rich jewel tones for Fall. When it comes to my wristwear of choice, Shashi’s Rachel Gemstone Bracelet fits the bill. A little more luxe, a little more polished, but still ready to pile on by the armful. (And, lucky for us… incredibly easy to make, as well.)
Materials / Where to Buy: Embroidery Floss (I used Lion Brand Cotton Bon Bons) // Glass or Gemstone Beads of your choice // Gold Beads // Beading Needle (Get this easy to thread kind.)
*To make the square knots, refer to this tutorial if you are not already familiar.

Quick question: Did you use 6mm or 8mm beads? I’m gathering all of my supplies, but can’t decde between the 6 or 8mm beads I have. Thanks for the great inspiration!
I used a mix. I’d go for the 6mm though, I like the way the smaller size beads look best!
Very pretty xx
thank you, Tanya!
