For my first project I wanted something simple that was inexpensive and quick to make. This is what I came up with. A bracelet that is easy to personalize by simply changing the bead color or the yarn color. Here is what you need to know to make it:
You will need:
size 3 crochet thread or size 10 thread doubled
50 size E (6/0) glass beads
size B crochet hook
fastener of your choice
String 50 beads onto your thread.
leaving a 6 inch tail, chain 53
single crochet in the second chain from the hook.
*single crochet in the next chain. slide a bead up. single crochet in the next chain. The bead will set on the back of your work. Repeat from * until all beads have been used. single crochet in last chain.
Chain 1 and single crochet in each stitch down opposite side to the end.
Chain 1 and continue around. Fasten off leaving a 6 inch tail.
Use the tails to secure your bracelet fasteners to each end.
See? Simple, easy and quick.
Until next time,
