Hi-lo polyester thread I found at Hobby Lobby, beads, beads and more beads! Crochet hook
What was your inspiration?
I LOVE texture and saw something similar done in wire but not nearly as "encrusted" as these have turned out to be. I needed a portable project to take as I traveled so this turned out to be perfect for me!
What are you most proud of?
Its always fun to get oouus and aahhs! I think that, and the fact that I have friends constantly asking me to teach them this technique, has been rewarding.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Collect tons of beads! I love how the tear dropped beads stand up and are great filler for this bracelet. Make sure your beads are too big, that gets difficult anchoring them in the fabric you create with your crochet stitches.
