Crocheted Beaded Bracelet

November 5, 2013

This is an easy crochet jewelry project, and it doesn’t even require jewelry-making supplies or skills. It does, however, require a lot of beads. I chose this project because I had some beads to use up, but I had to buy more beads to have enough to make a bracelet.

You can make this as long as you want; mine wraps around three times.

Here it is not on a wrist. It’s just a long chain of single crochet with beads incorporated.

And here’s the closure – it’s a button that slips through a loop of thread. I like how this looks, and I appreciated not having to struggle with attaching a jewelry clasp, which is not my strong point. I even happened to have a clear button that looks like a little jewel.

Project notes:

  • A very helpful video tutorial and a supply list are here.
  • I bought this waxed linen thread from Etsy, which is what she links to in her tutorial post. The thread from my local craft store only came in white; I really like the green color that I used here.
  • Remember to string all of the beads before you start to crochet. You don’t have to use them all, but you can’t add more beads later, so err on the side of stringing too many beads.
