Beaded Crochet

Good morning everyone!,
Can you believe it's almost the end of June?   Where did the time go?!

I have been experimenting with bead crochet lately.  Thought it would be fun to share my recent accomplishments with you!

Jewelry with fine sparkling Swarovski crystal is always a winner, don't you think?  These pieces are made from either 3mm or 4mm (teeny tiny) Swarovski's, some with AB finish.  I used Charlotte glass seed beads between the Swarovski's in the 1st design; the second and third bracelets are made with silver-lined size 11 Japanese glass seed beads.  All are crocheted by hand using sturdy C-Lon thread.  The components are sterling silver (clasps, bead caps, jump-rings, etc).   The core of the crochet has wire threaded thru it so that the bracelet can be 'shaped' to comfortably fit the wrist.  A flexible bangle style..easy on, easy off! They will fit about a 7-7.5 inch wrist, with ease.

Bead crochet is such a relaxing technique..I think 'I'm hooked!'  :)

I will be posting these for sale today at my Etsy Shop: ABeadsLife

Happy beading!


  1. Your bracelets are fantastic! Bead crochet is one technique I haven't tried yet, it frightens me a little, but you make me want to try as you show beautiful pieces!

  2. Thank you Karin! That means a lot to me, coming from you! :)
