Crochet Bead Bracelet

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

Directions:

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,
