This stunning beaded crochet bracelet is perfect for accessorizing a variety of different looks, from casual to dressy.

Supplies Needed to Crochet the Bracelet:

I used the following supplies to make the sample bracelet, but you should feel free to substitute other colors, fabrications and brands if you prefer.

  • Beads: sparkly faceted oval glass cathedral beads by Blue Moon beads; these beads are predominantly blue, but they incorporate a rainbow of other colors. I used 9 beads total to make my sample bracelet, but you might need a few more or less depending on how big you want your bracelet to be.


  • Fiber: Less than 1 skein (8 m / 8.7 yards) of DMC Light Effects embroidery floss; the colorway used in the sample is called "Opalescent Rays," #E-154. If you make substitutions, keep in mind that the fiber needs to be strong enough to support the beads you’ll be using.


  • Crochet Hook: Size C / 2.5 mm, or your preferred size


  • Clasp or Closure: A silver-colored closure would be the most harmonious choice for this particular colorway.


  • Other: Needle(s)
