Bead Crochet Bangles

Posted by fionatranter on March 10, 2014 at 8:10 PM

The crochet hooks have been running at full steam recently. Its been a great way to pass the time on a plane or in front of the televisions. I am not very good at just sitting still!!

The paler lavender bangle on the left was crocheted with size 8 seed beads from Bead Cats while the bangle on the right was crocheted with size 11 seed beads from Beyond Beadery.

The invisible join has improved because I get a top tip from Mary Lou of Time2cre8. She suggested I try using Fireline to join the rope into a loop because it's much finer than the thread used for the crochet and will reduce the bulk at the join. It's also very strong and will likely give a stronger join. :)
