Beaded crocheted bracelet video tutorial
I love the look of these bracelets. The turquoise & brown is my favorite, of course. I really love the mixture of color and bead shapes and sizes. All of them feel like summer to me. Maybe because of the colors I chose or the crocheted “twine” look. This is a great road trip project too! Supplies: a really long length of 3-ply waxed linen thread (at least 3 yards) various beads (seed beads size 11/0) 1 button crochet hook, size 5 Things you might want to know: * T0 find out how long your bracelet needs to be, measure your wrist and add 1/2″-3/4″ for each time you want it wrapped around your wrist. * It is best to find a good fitting bracelet you already own and use that as a guide. * The purple bracelet is almost 34 inches long and wraps around my wrist 5 times.

How to Make All in One Headpin Earrings Tutorial Some people use ball headpins for this style of all in one headpin earrings. However, you can also use headpins for the faux metal work look! I made this pair of earrings for myself using stainless steel headpins from Prima Bead's latest products. I was testing both the hypoallergenic qualities of the stainless steel used in their range of products as well as the strength of these 2.5" thin (approximately 24G) headpins. One reader left a comment in yesterday's post asking about possible lead content. Only a nerd like me would do this! Anna of Almost Precious was relieved to know that the findings were not magnetic. You can make this pair in about 1 minute. I used 8 mm faceted rondelles but you can use anything you like including pearls which I think are are also fabulous for this style. First add the beads and bead caps as you would a dangle. Next carefully bend the head pin to a 90 degree angle at the base of the bead only. The larger jaw should be placed away from you. Not quite done.

t Eat the Paste: Crochet Beaded Wrap Bracelet Pattern I used light spring colors, but this would work in other shades, and the basic technique will work with other weights of yarn.

Beachy Little Bracelet #2 This is the second installment of our Beachy Little Bracelet series. Last time we made Sea Glass (the middle bracelet in the photo below), a super easy chain stitched project. Now we're moving on to our second bracelet, a tiny bit more complicated, but very quick and easy. This bracelet is made with two strands of No. 10 crochet cotton (I used DMC Baroque), and a Size F hook. The only other materials are: 1 button and 15-25 beads. Make your bracelet just a bit snug. Let's crochet! String the beads on a double strand of cotton. Make a slip knot, leaving a 4-6" thread tail. Then make a 2-double crochet (2-dc) cluster in the first chain. To make a 2-dc cluster: yarn over, insert hook in chain 1, pull yarn through, yarn over, pull yarn through 2 loops. Repeat the above step. Yarn over, and pull yarn through all the loops on your hook. Slide a bead down close to the hook, then chain one (with the bead inside the chain): Chain 3: Make another 2-dc cluster in this space. And my bracelet was done.

Tuto: Double spirale Rope - Perles, etc... Suite à des demandes de copines, j'ai tenté de faire un petit tuto de la double spirale rope. Il y a, pour cette spirale, 3 types de groupes de perles: les perles de corps (centrales), les perles du motif 1 (extérieur) et celles du motif 2 (extérieur) Etape 1: Enfiler 4 perles de "corps" (rocailles de 8 au minimum) et les perles du motif 1 (ici j'ai choisi une séquence r15, r11, ronde de 3 mm, r11, r15.... mais l'avantage de cette spirale c'est que vous pouvez tenter presques toutes les combinaisons de perles) Etape 2: Repasser dans les 4 perles de corps. Etape 3: Enfiler les perles du motif 2 (ici, même séquence que pour le motif 1 mais de couleurs différentes) et repasser dans les 4 perles de corps. Etape 4: Ajouter 1 perle de corps + les perles du motif 1. Etape 5: Passer dans les 3 perles de corps les "plus hautes" du travail ET dans celle que l'on vient d'ajouter en piquant A CÔTE du motif 1 du rang précédent) Etape 7 : Ajouter les perles du motif 2. Voilà ce que çà donne! A retenir:

DIY Mix and Match Wrap Bracelets (A Tutorial Obviously I’m reinventing the “DIY bracelet” wheel, but I like the way these turned out using different kinds of ball chain (it’s also a much more simplified version of the leather and bead ones from last February). Anyways, I mixed and matched a bunch of different chains, rhinestone strands and chunky clasps to get a funky, layered bohemian look. Make sure to check out the long-short ball chain towards the bottom….it results in a “twist” effect. Here’s how I made them…… First, you’ll need leather and/or suede lacing, various rhinestone strands and ball chain, chunky lobster clasps and embroidery thread (which I forgot to include in the photo): Note: I picked up my lacing and chains at Target Trim in L.A.’s fabric district. Step 1: Cut a length of leather or suede lacing (for a double wrap I cut mine in 16″ lengths). Step 2: Lay your rhinestone strand or ball chain on top of the lacing and begin wrapping the thread around it to secure them together: A finished bracelet! Comments comments

Pochette au crochet Depuis le temps que je voulais crocheter des sacs... J'ai repéré une foule de modèles sympas, que je prévois d'adapter à ma manière (je suis presque incapable de suivre scrupuleusement un modèle, il faut toujours que je mette ma touche personnelle) Commençons modestement par une pochette crochetée d'une seule pièce et fermée par un bouton rouge. Je l'utilise comme organiseur de sac, pour y mettre l'essentiel : papiers, porte-monnaie, téléphone, clefs, mouchoirs. Point de vue dimensions, on peut adapter à ses besoins. Fournitures et matériel : 150 g de Coton fifty de Bergère de France travaillé en doublequelques g de coton rouge pour le boutonun bouton plat (un vieux bouton moche fait très bien l'affaire, puisqu'il est recouvert)un crochet n°3,5 et un crochet n° 3Réalisation : On commence par le fond du sac, réalisé avec le crochet 3,5. Pour le bouton, on adapte la taille en fonction du bouton à recouvrir, et on travaille en cercle, comme pour les amigurumis.
