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
• Pliers: plastic coated
• Tubing: sterling silver
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.
