Many people think that crocheting is limited to the humble afghan. No way I say! Anyone can use crocheting to create nearly anything you want, including jewelry. With this pattern, you can count yourself among the Fibre Artists who can take nothing more than a simple string, some beads or charms, and a little creativity and make something sure to impress.
This pattern shows how to make a stunningly gorgeous bracelet from crochet cotton thread and inexpensive glass pony beads. Once again, the pattern could easily be extended, quite literally, into making a choker necklace.
Included are a selection of photos demonstrating some less common techniques. Don't worry, they aren't difficult to master. If you have some experience crocheting, and if you can make a granny square, you will be able to make these bracelets too.

About the Author
Originally, I started selling finished beaded jewelry on Etsy and was overjoyed when folks started buying it. It further developed into finished slippers, more jewelry and a variety of unique collectibles and antiques.
Time and life went on and I created a number of unique slippers, texting mitts and jewelry items that no one else was producing. I became a little bored making the same things over and over and finally decided to create my first tutorial on how to make seed bead bracelets. That led me down the road of self publishing. Once bitten by the pattern writing and publishing bug I never looked back.
I now have a number of patterns, and more in development published with all the major online retailers including Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, Indigo/Chapters, and more.
Amazing what a chick from the prairies can accomplish with a computer, an Internet connection, a little creativity and dare I say, chutzpa ;-)
