Retired - Spiral Beaded Crochet Bracelet

PROJECT B668
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Advanced
This lovely bracelet is created using a circular beaded crochet stitch. The placement of the beads on the pearl cotton creates a striking spiral pattern.
Instructions
Note: Circular beaded crochet is not the easiest stitch to learn. Please be patient and allow yourself time to learn this technique. Once it "clicks" it is a lot of fun to do. The beaded portion of this bracelet measures 6.5" and the clasp adds just under another inch.
  1. To make this bracelet, please watch the video: Circular Beaded Crochet for Righties (if you are left handed, please watch the left-handed video here).
  2. Begin by preloading your pearl cotton thread with all the beads that you will be using for the entire project. You will want to load 10 beads of each color per finished inch of beaded bracelet you want. So for a 6.5 inch beaded bracelet (7.5 inch with the clasp), you will be loading 65 beads of each color (4 colors in this bracelet). Load them as shown in the video. Add at least a couple extra beads of each color, just so that you do not run out at the end.
  3. As shown in the video, circular bead crochet 6.5" worth of beading or however long you want the beaded portion of your bracelet to be. Please remember that the clasp will add almost another inch.
  4. When you get to the end of your crochet, and you end it as shown in the video, leave at least a 10 inch tail and cut the pearl cotton from the bobbin.
  5. Onto the tail, thread a big eye needle. String one bead onto the thread, pull down so it rests against your crochet. With the needle, go through the loop at the base of your toggle bar and then back down through the bead and into your crochet. Tie a discrete knot within your crochet. Now go back up through the bead and loop on the toggle bar again and back down through the bead. Tie another knot. Work your tail into the crochet, tying several discreet knots within your crochet. Keep working the tail into the crochet until you can no longer see it. Snip off any excess thread.
  6. Repeat the previous step with the other part of your toggle clasp.
  7. Enjoy!
