Gypsy Bracelet

November 7, 2012

I love the idea of putting things together that don’t necessarily match but I usually try to find little items that are in the same color range and 1-3 items of brighter colors. The only item that I bought in New York was the cord. The others I have found or bought over the years but could never find a project for them. I bought 3 samples of these little hearts in Bruxelles, the sheashells were collected on different beaches in Haiti and the rest I found around my house from old broken bracelets and necklaces.

Wanna make something similar? It’s easy. It took about 15 minutes to crochet the little orange and black round. It is basically what you would do if you were starting to crochet a hat crochet only 3 rounds ( I am assuming that you already know how to crochet)

Before and after putting a charm tie a little knot so they will not slide down the cord when wearing the necklace and just make a knot to connect both ends of the cord.

To make the seashells shine just add a coat or two of clear nail polish and let it dry. Easy!
