Let's Crochet A Pretty Sparkle Bracelet!

Don't you just love making a pilgrimage to your local craft store? I do! To me there is nothing more fun than standing in the aisle at the craft store where they sell crystals to make jewelry with. It is like a magical place with sparkling lights... in short, major eye candy! And when they run a big sale on crystals... oh, it's heaven!

Here's a chance for you to enjoy that, when you shop to pick out your beads to make this sparkly bracelet! Of of course you can use any beads you love and have on hand. The only requirement is that the DMC Infusions thread fits through the bead hole. So I really recomment you purchase the DMC Infusions thread and take it with you to go bead shopping. It will definitely fit the 12mm Swarovski crystals that I have used in my project here.

Here are my directions on making a little piece of crocheted jewelry that will take you virtually no time to make. It's a perfect little quick gift to make for yourself or someone special!

It's as easy as crocheting gets, easy enough for the starting beginner to try! I'll even give you a YouTube link to learn how to make a chain stitch. So cast your fears aside and let's crochet!

This bracelet is made with DMC Infusions Color Memory Thread in the Gold color. It feels more like a soft wire than thread. It comes in lots of fun colors too!

Just imagine making two or three of these in different (or the same) colors and wearing them together layered up! It would be beautiful, I think, and right on fashion trend!

How To Make The Magic!

This is SO Easy!

*Chain 6, slip stitch through bead. Repeat from * until bracelet is desired length. Before you cut the thread, stretch the bracelet gently to settle it all into place. That may affect your measurement so it's important to check before you fasten it off.

Choose your ending...

You can either finish this with a purchased toggle clasp finding, a lobster claw clasp finding, or you can crochet a loop at the end to fasten over your bead. I went with a magnetic clasp which is super easy to crochet on then fasten off.

For a more professional looking finish, you can use a crimp bead to cover the knot, squeezing it shut with jewelry pliers. Make sure the end of the cord is hidden inside a bead, securing it with a drop of super glue.

      Great lens. I might try crocheting my own bracelet and maybe make some for my friends as a gift.

      I really want to learn crochet. Right now I'm obsessed with making macrame bracelets, so hopefully I'll learn to crochet after my macrame phase. Great lens!
