Seed beads and crochet....




Something a little different for this Friday - I am enamored of seed beads and crochet and have been for a long time. When I hit a creative block in beadmaking, I'll crochet or beadweave to get my juices flowing again. Here's a picture of soft bangle bracelet I made completely. I handfelted the underlying felt rope and then I bead crocheted the bangle together. I wanted just a peek of the yellow felted rope with the red beads to give it high contrast. It's soft and blingy! Can't get much better than that!

Oooo! The combo of fiber arts (aside from the crochet) with beads is AWESOME. I mean, I know there's felt beads, and felt jewelry books, but I had never seen or thought up this kind of a use.

I like it!

Thanks, Sarebear! I try to take usual materials and design them into unusual jewelry. Put a twist on what everyone is using. I'm glad you like it!
