Jewelry designer Alix Bluh shows you how to crochet with beads using an easy stitch. The result is a subtly bejeweled, bohemian bracelet that can be adapted depending on what kind of cord and beads you use. It lays flat and looks even better with a couple variations stacked on your wrist. Alix talks through the different options, as well as two different kinds of closures: a toggle or a vintage button.
Note: In this class, Alix uses an unconventional crocheted chain stitch to create the foundation chain for her jewelry. While this nontraditional stitch works fine for this class, new crocheters may be interested in learning how to work a traditional chain stitch.

The class showed me some of the little details that I didn't know to do. I've used beads for a number of things, particularly the AB variety, and now I have a great new way to use them. Thanks very much for making it look so simple and concise.

Really enjoyed this class! Alix did a perfect job walking through everything step by step. I look forward to making a bunch of bracelets for gifts; they'll be a perfect use for the cute antique buttons I've been hoarding all these years!

Beautiful bracelet. Crochet looks a bit complicated. Picture blurs and times so hard to see.
