Beaded bracelets make stylish summertime accessories.

Once you learn this simple technique, you will be able to stitch an endless assortment of bracelet styles simply by varying the colors of beads and cotton threads!

Many women appreciate the slimming visual effect of wearing a long necklace over a simple dress. The Flirty Filigree Necklace Crochet Pattern is an easy-to-make necklace which uniquely blends beaded crochet with an exquisite filigree motif as the focal point. This intermediate-skill level design is created using size 10 crochet cotton thread and size 4mm to 6mm beads.

We love the color combination of this necklace in the design photo! We also think crocheting the pattern with black crochet thread and turquoise or silver beads would make a very striking necklace that would add pizzazz to any casual or dressy outfit!
