sodalite and lava stone bracelet

Combine the calm and soothing properties of Sodalite bead with the grounding energy of the lava stone to make this Sodalite and Lava Stone Wellness Bracelet. Elevate your DIY accessories made with beautiful semi-precious beads.
Step 1

Count five lengths from th end of the chain and open to remove the five links from the spool.
TIP: To remove the links, simply grasp both sides of the fifth link from the end with chain nose pliers and twist the link open, from side-to-side. Never pull it open which can cause distortion.

Step 2

Before you close the link, add the loop on the bar piece of the toggle.

Step 3

Cut a 12" [30.5 cm] piece of thread. Fold it in half and add to the link on the opposite end of the five with a lark’s head knot.
TIP: For a lark’s head knot, place the fold underneath the link. Bring the end of the thread over the outside of the link and thread through the fold. Pull the ends so the fold is flush against the link and the even strands are hanging down from the link.

Step 4

Hold the two strands together and add a collapsible needle.

Step 5

String on your beads as desired (or as shown).

Step 6

Remove the needle from the thread.

Step 7

Remove three more chain links and add the loop from the oval part of the toggle and close the link.

Step 8

Tie the link on the other end of the three to the bracelet with the excess thread. Tie as close as you can against the last bead.

Step 9

Use the needle to tuck the thread into the last bead, then trim excess.

Step 10
Add glue to the thread on each end of the beads. Let dry.
TIP: The nozzle on the glue fits nicely inside the bead to add glue.
