Crochet Beaded Bracelet I've found another use for my crochet cotton thread - a beaded bracelet. It's great for summer, when you might be getting sweaty, dirty, or jumping in the pool (sea, lake, whatever), because it's washable - so you don't even have to take it off. This pattern could easily be changed to be an anklet or choker. It's a simple single crochet, so you can add stitches to make it wider and rows to make it longer. I used beads for my bracelet, but you can use anything you can string on the thread: beads, buttons, sequins ... use your imagination *and* your stash.

Byzantine and Box Chain Maille Tutorials Of all the chain maille weaves, the Byzantine or birdcage is perhaps one of the most attractive for jewelry.
