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
