3 Easy Gemstone Bracelets using Round, Nugget & Rondelle Bead Shapes
This week on Free Spirit Beading with Kristen Fagan, we made 3 easy gemstone bracelets using round, nugget and rondelle bead shapes. Bracelets are accented with textured jump rings from our outlet shop and crystal spacer beads on closeout. The designs are strung on Soft Flex Chrysoprase and Extreme 925 Sterling Silver beading wire colors.
The first bracelet is made with these big beautiful 12mm round beads. I wish I had labeled what stone this bead is when I stored it years ago. I am not sure, but my goodness it's beautiful deep green! I simply strung these beads onto Soft Flex Medium Beading Wire with 6mm copper tone textured jump rings as spacer beads. You can find these jump rings in our outlet shop while supplies last. This bracelet is crimped with 2x2mm copper crimp tubes and finished with a copper colored hammered magnetic clasp.

The next bracelet featured our curated color of the week, Chrysoprase. Chrysoprase is known for manifesting joy, optimism and happiness as well as attracting new love, abundance and prosperity. These gorgeous Chrysoprase nugget shaped beads are strung on Soft Flex Chrysoprase beading wire and feature 8mm emerald crystal gold squaredelle spacer beads on closeout while supplies last. The organic shape contrasts nicely with the fancy gold spacers. This design is crimped with 2x2mm gold filled crimp tubes and finished with a large gold hammered toggle clasp.
Last, but not this zigzag goddess bead bracelet is a simple design, quick to do and overall has a big impact! The design is elevated with gorgeous Lapis 8mm rondelle gemstone beads and 6mm silver tone textured jump rings. You can find these jump rings in our outlet shop while supplies last.
Lapis is the stone of wisdom, intuition and truth. This stone is powerful for anyone seeking to deepen their connection to their authentic self. This two strand beaded design and was strung on Extreme Flex 925 Sterling Silver beading wire, crimped with 2x2mm sterling silver crimp tubes and finished with a small silver hammered toggle clasp.
