So my mothers birthday is slowly approaching and I kept thinking what to get her? With nothing really screaming her I knew I either had to come up with something unique or start looking in random places. She’s in love with amethyst so i decided to make her a cute goes with everything type of bracelet.
This pattern is ideal for beginners, if you have never crocheted before or haven’t crochet with beads this is a perfect starting point. You will learn all of the basics while also acquiring a beautiful amethyst bracelet at the end. I look forward to seeing your work! Please post on our social media site or the forum!
Here is what you will need
Fine wire (tarnish resistant) – 26, 28, 30 gauge (the larger the gauge, the smaller the wire is, which makes it easier to work with your crochet hook) I used a 26 gauge.
Crochet hook – any size can be used (use a metal one, it may damage other materials such as plastic) if you want larger loops for your bracelet then use a larger hook, experiment a little, make a few loops with the hooks you are deciding and pick which one works best for you with this project. I used a 3.25 hook.
2 end clasp– whichever designs that you like! Try to find tarnish resistant material if you can!
Beads – though this says amethyst, you can use whatever type of bead you want! try finding ones that you can pair with the dangle bead in the middle just try to make sure they are not to big. Approx 18 regular beads, 1 dangle bead, and 2 end beads.
The 2 end beads are to hide attaching to the end clasps onto your bracelet and to make sure that the wire will not poke you
Wire pliers– these are not needed but make your life a lot more easy while using the end beads
Scissors – to cut the wire of course (it’s very fine so normal scissors will work)
This is a video for the bracelet down below you will find the written pattern.
Put the beads you are using onto the wire (make sure they are even on each side of the dangle bead in the middle)
About an inch inwards from the top of the wire make a slip knot
chain 2, then chain with 1 bead for each for chain. before and after the dangle bead do a chain with no bead in it (this will bring more attention to the dangle bead). When you run out of beads chain 2 again. (Wire is very flexible and will stay how you put it so if the beads are not in the exact spot you want them try moving them around a bit)
you should now have something that looks like that
Place the end bead on the top of the chain, tug the wire around the end clasp, and bring it back through the end bead, cut the wire so that there is a little bit left and push that through the end bead again so that you can’t feel the wire and that it won’t easily come out. Do this for both sides (make sure you put the clasps on the same side)
Now you have completed your bracelet, Good Job! If you have any questions or concerns please leave a comment, I’m sure if you are thinking it then someone else is too.
