Beaded bracelet again

This time I decided to make bead ropes and braid them in the braid. The idea was good, but it was not so easy to join this ropes as I wanted. First I used triple element on each end, which I joined with the heart clasp. It looked ok, but the bracelet was to long for my skinny wrist. I had to remove this element and fix it with rings only ant this was FUN!! I spend about a half an hour to put 3 little rings + clasp ring in another little ring and clench it before they slip out. TWO times 🙂 Now the bracelet is a little bit to tight and I have a problem to fasten the clasp, but decided to wear it for some time and check if the ropes stretch a little before changing anything.

The bracelet was complimented a couple of times, while I was wearing it 🙂 It matches my summer tops, so I hope to wear it more later or.. buy some matching clothes earlier 😉

The ropes are crocheted with 5 TOHO 8/0 beads, Opaque Lawender, Ceylon Grape Mist and Opaque Light Beige.

 

It looks like I only crochet with beads now, but it is not true at all. I am also making a set of 4 hand fans for a lovely bride from Ireland and her bridesmaids. I agree with her, that hand fans are great alternative to flowers, especially if the wedding is going to be in Spain 🙂 I hope to show you the fans in my next post.

And now, thanks for your visit and to the next post 🙂
