"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."

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.

  14. Pattern requested by followers in 2011, 2013, 2014, but I still do not see it. Wondering if you even read your followers comments? They are the ones that make the blog popular, after all.
