    1. I used lobster clasps for my bracelet. I would recommend using a clasp or just sewing the bracelet together. I don’t know how to make a braid tie off, but you can give it a try. :)

  1. this would be pretty for spring in baby yarn in pastel colors! or if a wedding is coming up, how about making colors to match the bride’s maid’s dresses?

  2. “Beaded Bracelet | Blog of Joy” ended up being a perfect
    blog post. In case it possessed a lot more pictures this could be
    even better. Take care -Lily

  3. I love your bracelet pattern. Have made four so far and am going to make at least one more for Christmas. I use metal silver-tone alphabet beads and toggle clasps from JoAnn. I either spell out the name or an inspirational word, such as believe.

    1. Thank you so much for sharing with me about this, Brenda! That makes my day! :) I’m so glad that the pattern has been such a help to you in making these sweet gifts.
