These would make a great gift for someone you know who is trying to conceive a baby. I made a few of these fertility bracelets up for myself and thought I would add it to the site. Rose quartz and Moonstone are both listed as Fertility crystals. I added the baby themed charms for extra luck.
What you need
Start by designing your fertility bracelet. Crystal gemstone chips are less expensive than shaped beads this is something you might want to consider when buying your fertility crystals. The shape of the crystal beads or chips makes no difference to the healing qualities of the crystals.
You can layout your fertility bracelet in any design, but use the image above as a guideline if you need some inspiration for your layout.
The baby charms were bought from a scrapbooking shop, but most craft stores carry similar designs. These were my own personal choice as they reached out to me in the store. We are all on our own fertility or IVF journey so choose a trinket that appeals to your heart and your fertility journey.
Some crystal meanings are these, choose a crystal gemstone that reflects your healing needs.
This tutorial shows you how to make polymer clay bracelet.
What you need
– 1 chain bracelet large enough to fit the wrist of the wearer (about 7â€³ or 8â€³ usually)
– Bakeable modeling clay (I used Sculpey Pluffey white)
– Wax paper, glass board or tin foil to work the clay on
– Small heart shaped cookie cutter
– Picture nail to make hole in clay
– Acrylic Paint (I used Folk Art Apple Red and Folk Art Extreme Glitter Rose)
– Clear glaze
– 7 or 8 Small crystal beads to intersperse with the hearts
– 3mm round acrylic rhinestones â€“ 2 for each heart
– Jump rings to attach the charms and beads to the bracelet
1. Work the clay and roll out to desired thickness
2. Cut out 8 – 10 heart shapes using a heart shaped cookie cutter.
3. Make hole near the top of heart shape for the jump ring to fit through
4. Follow the instructions on the clay packet for baking the heart shapes
5. When cool, paint with your chosen colors. I found it easier to hold them flat with the picture nail while I painted the edges and one side of heart then allow it to dry thoroughly before turning it over and painting the other side.
6. Allow each coat of paint to dry before applying the next coat. (If you don’t want to add the rhinestones you can add your own painted design at this stage.)
7. When the paint is completely dry finish the hearts off with a clear glaze
8. Glue a rhinestone jewel to one side of the heart charms. Allow to dry thoroughly before gluing one on the other side.
9. Attach the charms and beads to the chain starting with one colored heart shape, then a crystal bead, then the other colored heart. Carry this pattern through until you have completed your bracelet.
