Spring Flower Bracelet

Spring Flower Bracelet


Here is one of my original designs. Hope you like it!
* Finished length of bracelet is 7" excluding toggle and clasp. For the closure, I used acrylic bead that is 3/4" long and passed the thread through the hole of the bead 2x for strength. You may use lobster clasp or any findings you like instead of the bead.

Materials: size 10 crochet thread in ecrusize 8 seed beads in 5 colors of your choice
steel hook #6 ( I crochet loosely)
1 clear acrylic bead 3/4" long

Round 1 - String 10 pcs of size 8 seed beads of each color 5 times for a total of 250 seed beads. Remember that the last color strung will be the first one crocheted. Pass thread through the hole of the acrylic bead and tie it once centering the knot. Pass the thread through the hole once again and knot it twice. Make sure it is snug.

Round 2 - Chain 67. Slip stitch into 6th chain from hook to form a loop. Sc 10x into loop to form a ring. (to fit the acrylic bead which will serve as a closure for your bracelet)Round 3 - Sl st into the next 5 ch previously made. *Ch 7, sl st into base of chain. Make 10 sc's with seed beads into the ring made to form a 'flower'. Sl st into the next 2 chains. Repeat * until you've used up all the seed beads strung. You should have a total of 25 'flowers' for your bracelet. Sl st into the last 5 remaining ch. Tie off. Weave in ends.

  • Hi, Jaclim! I am trying to make this bracelet for my daughters' teachers, but I don't understand how to attach the big acrylic bead. Am I using a cut length of thread? If I string the seed beads then tie on the big bead won't the seed beads be trapped behind it? Thank you for your help! It's a beautiful bracelet!!
