This bracelet is crocheted using medium or large sized beads plus 26 gauge wire.
Vashti Braha designed this bracelet, which she suggests as a possibility for Mother's Day gift-giving. I concur that this would be a great gift for Mom, but I imagine you'd want to make several of these bracelets, one for all the ladies you love.
Vashti's bracelet took her less than an hour to make, so this is a reasonably quick project.
This bracelet measures 7 inches long, but the instructions are written in such a way that it would be reasonably easy to adjust this if you'd rather make your bracelet a different size. The suggested supplies for this bracelet include beads and 26-gauge silver wire.
The instructions are posted at the Ben Franklin Crafts website.
If you decide to give this multi-strand necklace a try, you'll use 26-gauge copper wire plus a variety of different beads to crochet it. The completed necklace measures 22 inches long.
