Many people believe semiprecious gemstone beads have healing affects on the body and soul and wearing different stones will enhance their lives.  I was inspired by this wonderful concept and have combined stones that help promote a feeling of happiness.  

Directions

1. Start the necklace by taking a crimp bead and string it onto one end of the Buddy Braids about a ½”from the end. 

2. Take the clasp and string it onto the same end of the Buddy Braids the crimp bead is on.

3. Take your Buddy Braids and string it back through the crimp bead.  See figure 1.

4. Take a pair of pliers and squeeze the crimp bead until you cannot pull the Buddy Braids back through.  Do not trim the excess; simply string the beads on the Buddy Braids and the ½” extra Buddy Braids you have.
5. Start stringing your beads:
String: 4 – 6mm Carnelian Rounds, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 8mm Rose Quartz Round, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 8 – 6mm Carnelian Rounds, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 8mm Rose Quartz Round, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 8 – 6mm Carnelian Rounds,  1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 18x25mm Rose Quartz Oval, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 2 – 6mm Carnelian Rounds, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 18x25mm Rose Quartz Oval, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 2 – 6mm Carnelian Rounds, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 18x25mm Rose Quartz Oval, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 8 – 6mm Carnelian Rounds, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 8mm Rose Quartz Round, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 8 – 6mm Carnelian Rounds, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 8mm Rose Quartz Round, 1 – 6mm Amazonite Round, 1 – 4mm Aventurine Round, and 4 – 6mm Carnelian Rounds,

6. Add a crimp bead and the split ring.

7. Take your Buddy Braids and string back through the crimp bead.  String the Buddy Braids through several of the last beads you strung.  Pull the Buddy Braids tight making the jump ring close to the crimp bead.  See figure 2.  While holding the Buddy Braids use your pliers and squeeze the crimp bead so the Buddy Braids will not pull out.  Trim the extra Buddy Braids.
