Learn how to make the Feathered Fluorite Collection using shining gemstone beads, a beautiful rose gold feather charm and nugget beads.

Step 1

Fluorite ring - 
Take a short length of elastic and thread on your 2 chosen fluorite beads.
Thread either end of the elastic down through the holes on your ring base. 
Tie your two ends of elastic together on the inside of the ring.
Make sure the knots are secure and strengthen with a small drop of glue or clear nail polish.
Cut the elastic tails when you are happy with your design. 

Step 2

Fluorite tube bracelet -
Take a length of elastic measuring approx. 10".
Thread on approx. 22 beads. This will make a bracelet large enough to stretch over your hand and sit snuggly to your wrist. 
Add more or less beads if you require. 
Thread on your tube bead and knot your elastic, you may wish to secure the knot further with a drop of glue or clear nail polish. Once you are happy the knot is secure, trim the tails and hide the knot inside your tube bead.

Step 3

Feathered macrame bracelet - 
Take two lengths of purple cord measuring approx. 12" each. 
Thread one of the cords through one side of your feather charm to the halfway point. Make a knot below the charm loop. 
Thread a nugget bead onto one side of your halved cord. 
Knot the two sides again beneath the nugget bead. 
Repeat this process on the other side of your feather charm. 

Step 4

Cut another length of cord measuring appro 10".
Take the 4 ends of the cords, lay them side by side and then do a macramé braid (approx. 6 or 7 square knots) for your sliding knot. (CLICK HERE to learn how to make macrame knots)
Secure the ends of your working cord with a drop of glue, being careful not to glue the sliding knot to the centre cords running through it (otherwise it will not be able to slide and adjust). Try gently pulling the centre cords through the sliding knot while the glue dries.
Trim the ends so the sliding knot is neat.

Step 5

To each of the 4 cords, thread on a nugget bead and knot below to secure it in place.
