Welcome!

Welcome to my blog! When I started this blog it was all about wire crochet jewelry. I fell in love with the first piece I saw and I had to learn how. I was "hooked"!

Red White & Blue Bling Bracelet


I saw a bracelet using sequins in one of my books and being a lover of "bling" I wanted to try it!  I bought a mixed bag of sequins and as I was sorting them, the red, blue and silver ones just caught my eye.  I was hoping to have it finished for a Memorial Day post but didn't get it done in time. 

 It also includes silver lined clear seed beads and red bugle beads.  It's actually pretty wide, about an inch and a half, including the sequins.  I really think I'd prefer it on a smaller scale, but it is pretty and sparkly and has lots of Bling!

I think these would be neat for twirlers or school spirit bracelets.
What do you think of it?

Love it Jana! It's funny, I was at Ben Franklin on Memorial Day picking up some fabric, and the bead aisle just spoke to me. What caught my eye but a red, white & blue seed bead mix. Great minds think alike!

No worries though, 4th of July is just around the corner! :)

Have a TERRIFIC day!

It's lovely Jana. I like the width, if it was narrower it might not have the same 'wow' factor. Were the sequins fiddly to crochet?

So pretty! I totally think these would be awesome in school colors! And this particular bracelet would be perfect to wear to a Fourth of July barbecue.
