I recently came across these bracelets and rather then pay outrageour price I figure i could make them myself. Looking for a little help on the components of it. I found a tutorial on how to make them just need some help thanks!

What type of string should I use?
How can I make the draw string adjustable end?
Where can I purchase the Swarovski crystals from?
Where can I purchase the Hematite Stones from?

Link to site were I found them - http://www.northskull.com/northskull-black-onyx-and-clear-swarovski-shamballa-bracelet-silver-edition.html

I use two different drawstring closures; both work best with fairly thick cords, not beadalon or silk.

1)  After making the pretty part of the bracelet, pass one end of the cord through two beads with holes that will fit two cords snugly, then knot the end.  Starting from the knot side, pass the other end of the cord through both beads, and knot that end.  When you move the beads apart, the bracelet (or necklace) gets smaller.

2)  Knot one end of the cord a short way back from the other end of the cord; repeat so each end of the cord is knotted around the other.  Slide the knots apart to tighten.
