Mesh Shake Bracelets

When Fire Mountain Gems sent me some mesh tube as a gift with my order, I thought they’d be quite stimmy as a shake bracelet full of small beads. Here’s our prototype mesh shake bracelet featuring Preciosa silver-lined ruby Czech glass seed beads and cherry red wooden bicones:

We keep picking this up to fidget with it. The bicones slide allowing the seed beads to be gathered together during wear or allowed free during stimming. The mesh has the qualities of finger cuffs: pulling on the mesh constricts the tube, pushing the mesh together expands the tube. This constriction and expansion allows controlling the cascade of the beads through the tube.

The magnetic clasp closes with a satisfyingly affirmative click and locks with a bayonet lug.
