Use any colour bead to suit your style!

I can't take credit for this tutorial since it was my friend who showed me how to crochet with beads. She taught me how to make this bracelet.

You just need to know the basics of crochet (YouTube is the best!)

The bracelets turn out so beautiful and who'd thought it would be this easy, I just had to share it with you guys!

So cute and easy! I made a white one with metallic-y purple beads. I did a button clasp at the end instead of a regular clasp. (I chained three on one corner of a short side (Left side) and slip stitched it over to the next corner (Right side). In the middle of the opposite short side I chained two and sewed a button on. Voila! Button clasp! :) Love this tutorial...So cute!

Adorable! I've been crocheting since I was 7, and this craft is so simple i'm surprised I never thought to do it! I think i'm going to make my bracelet three or four times to big and make it a wrap bracelet.

Hi, I can crochet but it's been a long time since I have READ any crochet instructions. Can you write out the crochet instructions so they are not abbreviated please.Is it 1 single crochet (sc) in 49 stitches then turn? so you have a back of a row and a front of a row? thanks. R
