I had a few bags of colour coordinated beads, bought from a craft stall at work, and had no idea what to do with them until I saw a video tutorial from Creative Kismet and pinned it on Pinterest for future reference. See my Jewellery DIY board for this and other ideas.
Now that I’ve broken free to actually do something, voila, some colourful crochet and bead bracelets. For the first one I added some lilac seed beads bought from a craft fair and used a random cotton yarn (lilac and pink) for the crochet.
For the others I used orange cotton yarn and because I made two one of them can double as a necklace if I want to have a matching set.
