I really wanted to play with the luscious blue tones of the Swarovski crystal pearls and Mother of Pearl beads, so I paired them with glittering Goldstone and Sodalite in this organic look.
This bracelet combines luxurious Mother of Pearl beads, gemstones, and Swarovski crystal pearls in a crocheted design that creates an organic, comfortable feel. Put the beads in a random pattern for effortless style and make this bracelet as long or as short as you want. It's a great option for a Mother's Day gift. You can see more Mother's Day gift ideas in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Use a big eye needle to string the Swarovski 6mm Crystal Iridescent Dark Blue round pearls, the Dakota Stones 6mm orange sodalite round beads, the 6mm dark blue round Mother of Pearl beads, and the Dakota Stones goldstone 6mm round beads onto your crochet thread in a random pattern. We used size 10 crochet thread, a size E 4-3.5mm crochet hook, and 85 beads for our bracelet. It doesn't hurt to string more than necessary, because when you cut your thread, you can always remove the beads you don't need.
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!
