Bead Bracelets

I finally finished the crocheted bead bracelets I made when we were camping this Summer. It is funny, but I was more intimidated about finishing them than I was about making them. They turned out pretty cool and I like the stripe effect (see pic #4). The one I just started will be iridescent purple beads and I have no idea whether this amount of beads will make 1 or 2. The first inch took me about 5 restarts but I seem to be crocheting smoothly now.

Bead Crochet Bracelets

Well, here they are!

The verdict? They are comfortable to wear, fun to make and I love them. I realized during my photography session that I either need a mannequin arm or a friend with daintier wrists than mine. 🙂 You can see from the pictures that some can be worn as both  necklaces and bracelets. I am having fun rummaging through my bead bin and scrounging cool buttons for closures.

Creating is fun, photography is hard, but now that I have them all photographed I will get them measured and listed in my Etsy store tomorrow.  So far I am making them to fit a 6.5 inch wrist (mine),  but I’d be happy to make them in custom colors or lengths, call or email me with your ideas!  Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite…
