miracle bracelets

November 24, 2010 § Leave a comment

These are what I call my miracle bracelets.

I make them to pass out to people as a little

reminder that miracles are everywhere. I love

displaying them on old wood, with a rustic

feeling, hanging them up like ornaments as

reminders, or showing them displayed on the

arm with as many as you can fit.

So you need a miracle, you need to be

uplifted. Well then it’s time you make up your

own miracle bracelet, and make up a bunch

to give to others that may need a miracle

too. I started making these for people who

needed a little miracle in their lives. I love to

make them and pass them on as well. Wear

one, wear a bunch. They are super reminders

that miracles are everywhere we just need

to remember them. Each bracelet is made

with a Milagros charm. Milagros charms are

often made of pot metal in South America

and in Mexico. They are tokens, or reminders

of miracles granted and miracles that are

waiting to manifest. So let’s get to work and

make your miracles a reality.

Tools & Materials

• Adhesive: (E-6000)

• Jump ring: 10 mm

• Leather thong: 1½ mm

• Milagros

• Pliers: plastic coated

• Scissors

• Tubing: sterling silver

Technique

Measure your wrist. Cut the thong to the

measurement leaving about ½ inch per

side to be put into the tubing. Put E-6000

at the ends of the cord. Stuff the ends into

the tubing. Clamp down the tubing with

the plastic-coated pliers to clamp down the

leather cord. Attach the Milagros to the

jump ring or wire wrap the Milagros onto the

leather cord using 1½ inch of sterling silver

20-gauge wire. Now put on the bracelet and

expect miracles to happen.
