I have been finding these Bead Soup bracelets a true joy to knit and create.
Here are two options, both with the same set of beads but different thread. The black one (pictured on the white background) uses black metallic thread with beads which combine many sizes and shapes of crystals, silver lined and AB, blacks both matte and gloss, daggers and drops and everything in between. We also added some color- lined crystal beads (in varying sizes) to add just a hint of color. Quite dramatic. The white one uses the same beads with a pearl white thread or a silver thread for an interesting floating look.
We think the results are quite striking and definitely unique.
Each bracelet is made by your stringing the beads randomly on the thread of choice.
Figure on size 0 needles though gauge is not an important factor here.
These are fun, fast, and quite lovely. The clasps are silver toggles. Each kit contains the beads, the thread, and a clasp. The pattern is the same as for all of the Bead Soup and Bead Stew Bracelets -- you have the option to get it or not via the drop-down menu.
Note that the kit will not automatically include the pattern. We offer three options. I know some of you might already have made other bracelets from us that are made along the same lines, the only real changes being the beads and the colors. If you feel you do not need another pattern, simply choose "No Pattern Needed."
If you would like a printed copy, please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that.
We also can email the pattern to you, though I have to do it manually and usually send it right before I mail the kit (please be patient). Just make sure that drop-down menu is set as you would like before you check out.
