To add a delicate touch to your hairstyle this spring, try this skinny headband. Mix and match different threads and different beads to create subtle sparkle or for a more showy, glitzy look.
It’s easy enough to do single chain wire crochet jewelry (see past tutorial links below). The most popular way is to make 3 strands and then braid it. But you don’t have to do it like that. Cyndi Lavin over at Beading Arts has a few crochet wire necklace tutorials that will surely make you think differently!
In case you’d like to give it a try though, it’s crocheted using slip stitches. The ends of 4-way braids, and the ends are held together with a macrame square knot. You’ll need the smallest crochet hook you can find – a 2.5mm hook, some embroidery thread (6 strand), and some size 6 seed beads. I don’t know how the sizing works on seed beads, but basically, you use the ones that are just about to make you go blind looking at them.
After some beadweaving, it was finally time to do some bead crocheting instead. So here I am with two bracelets – one with the rose pattern, matching the necklace from this post, and another one, more geometric. The first one is a bit wider, 25 beads per row, while the second one is made with only 20 beads. Both are flattened, as this is the way that I like wearing them. Also, both are made entirely with Toho size 11 seed beads.
