For this design I blended several colors of Czech glass beads onto a crocheted strand to create a wrap bracelet with an earthy color palette.
The Czech glass beads in this bracelet create an earthy display full of moss tones, brown soil colors, and leafy greens. The crochet technique adds to the organic feel of this piece. Wrap this bracelet around your wrist and imagine a magical path winding through the forest
We used The BeadSmith Super-Lon bead cord in brown and a size E (3.5mm) crochet hook. Thread all of the Czech glass 9mm roundel beads in topaz with Picasso, green and clear with Picasso, and yellow and purple with Picasso onto the cord, working on the spool. It doesn't hurt to string more than necessary, because when you cut your thread, you can always remove the ones you don't need. You can also add beads at that point if you need to. The TierraCast antique copper-plated pewter swirl button will be the closure and the last component added to the cord. Add it to the cord and then loop the cord through the button holes three times. Tie a knot at the back of the button. Make sure to leave a six inch tail on your cord.
Repeat this pattern until the bracelet is the desired length, keeping in mind that the button and loop closure will take up about 1 1/2 inches of the length. Our bracelet measures 22 inches from the end of the TierraCast button to the end of the bead loop. We used 48 Czech glass beads, which makes a 7 1/2-inch triple wrap bracelet.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
