Static magnets have been studied to determine what, if any, therapeutic value they have on human and animal health. Static magnets have shown some promise in pain relief, diabetic foot pain, wound healing and osteoarthritis according to Intelihealth, but more research is needed before experts can prove their benefits. Pearls and hematite beads can be magnetized into static magnets and strung. You can mix different sizes, shapes and colors to make interesting and unique jewelry.Permanent Magnets, Magnet Material , NdFeB Magnet ,Magnetic Coupling

    Stringing a Magnetic Bracelet

  1. 1

    Select the type of stringing material you desire. Options include stretch cord, monofilament line, heavy thread and wire. Stretch cord allows a bracelet to stretch and contract like elastic. Stretch cord comes in several sizes. A medium weight will easily pass through the hole in most hematite beads. Thin stretch cord is not very sturdy, and you may find yourself restringing them again later. Monofilament line is sturdy and easy to string. Thin line will easily pass through the bead hole without a needle. Because the line is not elastic, you will need a bracelet catch. Heavy thread or thin cord is sturdier than stretch cord, but less than monofilament line. Most thread is thin enough to easily pass through the bead hole, but cord may need beads with at least a medium-sized hole. You may want to use a beading needle because thread or cord is rather limp. Neither thread nor cord is elastic, so you will need a bracelet catch. Wire is perhaps the sturdiest option, but requires additional tools and a clasp.

  2. 2

    Lay out your beads in the order you want to string them. Because the beads are magnetic, they will stick together and make the ordering easier. Mix and match as you like. You may use beads that are not magnetic interspersed in your bracelet. This will not affect the magnetic quality of your bracelet.

  3. 3

    Measure your wrist and add 2 to 3 inches for the length of your string. Cut and secure one end of the stringing material with a knot or by attaching it to one end of the clasp if you are not using stretch cord.

  4. 4

    String your beads. Use a beading needle if necessary. Measure your progress as you go. Stop when you get to the desired length.

  5. 5

    Finish the bracelet. If you used stretch cord, tie the ends together with several knots and carefully singe the ends so the knot does not come apart. If you used monofilament line, thread or cord, tie the end securely to the other side of the bracelet clasp. You can tuck the thread ends back into the end beads to prevent the knots from coming untied. If you are using wire, wrap the end of the wire around the eye at the end of the clasp. Tuck the wire ends into the end beads to prevent the wire ends from scratching you or catching on clothing.
