"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
Philippians 4:8

Handmade Crocheted Cuff Bracelets

I spent Thanksgiving weekend in San Clemente with my daughter. San Clemente is a beautiful beach town in Southern California. We strolled through Old Town. What a quaint little town! We learned that cuff bracelets are the rage! Sarah spotted a knit shop that had bracelets made out of wool. I decided to come home and crochet my own dazzled up version out of sparkle string.

These are some of the bracelets I made for Christmas gifts this year. The bracelets cost about six dollars to make. It is the time invested that is the value. Each bracelet takes 2 1/2 hours to make. I used antique rhinestones that I found at various estate sales. Boy do they sparkle! No two are alike. I hope my friends enjoy them! :) I have had such a great response, that I have now decided to sell these bracelets. I am now taking requests. Please leave a comment with your contact info if you are interested. :)

I am loving making these bracelets. Each time I make a new one it immediately gets claimed!
I think I will keep this one because the rhinestone came off of a pair of shoes I had when I was little. I used to pretend I was a princess and my mother bought me beautiful gowns and shoes from our church thrift store that she volunteered at. I was thrilled to find this shoe buckle.
