Wrap Stacked and Layered Challenge

I'm addicted to all kinds of jewelry, what can I say? Anything shiny, sparkly and pretty always catches my eye. I have to admit that bracelets are my weakness. I love to collect, make and buy them because they're so fun to wear and so versatile. I'm loving the layered look that is so popular right now, but there are so many different ways to wear them. On a daily basis you can always find my arm full of wrap and stretchy gemstone bracelets, so when I read about Tracy's wrapped, stacked and layered challenge, I knew I had to participate. I love all of these stretchy gemstone and charm bracelets. Not only were they fun to make, but they look amazing when all worn together!

  6. Wow, how much fun it would be to wear all those bracelets at once! This was a fun challenge, wasn't it!

  7. such a fun stack, since you work so much w/ elastic, any tips? size or brand of elastc? special knots? I am always worried my knots will slide out

    1. Thanks so much! I use stretch magic, triple knot, hide the knot in a bigger bead and glue both sides.

  20. What a neat stack you made. The roundness and similar size of the beads in your stack seems to give it an almost elegant feel, though I'm sure the stack can be worn casually as well. Nicely done!
