Turquoise Pebbles


About this design:

A friend asked for one of my crocheted bracelets. After suggesting 4 braided chains, I realized I did not remember how to braid 4 strands. Thank goodness for the internet.
*Thanks to Lynn G, who was inspired by my original crocheted offerings. I borrowed her idea of using the cones. I love the way they finish the piece.

Components:

Howlite nuggets, 26 gauge copper wire, copper cones, copper/silver toggle

    Thanks so much Tara and Sarah!
    I had originally braided this tightly, so it was really a chunky Turquoise bracelet, but then realized that my friend had admired my very first crocheted bracelet. So back to the drawing board with new chains and a looser braid to show the copper.

    Good job!!! I just taught myself wire crochet (also thanks to the web). I know what you mean about getting the braids and twists too tight – but this looks perfect!!!

    Confession time — I am “the friend”!!! Tee hee….I can hardly wait for her to arrive, Jeanne!!! She is gorgeous — even more beautiful than the first one!!! My wrist is so lonely and naked…..LOL

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, Jeanne, for creating this stunning bracelet for me to purchase! :D BTW, your Etsy shop is fantastic!!!

    A thought just occurred to me — for a Chicky who doesn’t usually wear bracelets, Jeanne, you sure do know how to make fabulous ones!!! 8)

    And of course, Lynn!!! Lynn! – I’m wearing bracelets! Now that I can make my own to fit my ridiculous wrist.
    Maybe she’ll get there before you leave down. the PO said 2-3 days.

    Hey Lynn G!
    I just love the way we are inspired by and grow from each other.
    ps – haven’t had a chance to read the whole article, but your newspaper feature is awesome!!!!
    congrats!

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I hope she gets here before I leave to spend the weekend at Dad’s — then I can wear her to his birthday dinner on Saturday! I’ll be sure to let you know once she arrives….. :D

    It really does help when you can design and create your own jewlery, especially bracelets, because then you know the fit will be perfect! :)

    Thank you to anyone I haven’t thanked personally!!!!
    Rock Chick – I crochet with yarn, so I had that part down. Otherwise, I googled how to wire crochet or crocheted bracelets and adapted from there.
