This project started out with my researching macrame bracelet tutorials. I have a stash of small beads I wanted to use, but most of the macrame patterns called for bigger beads as focal points. Even the pattern (found here) that I used for these bracelets was laid out using fairly large beads. On a trip to the craft store, I found this lovely pink and purple crochet thread (size 3) with a pretty metallic strip in it. Using a 3.25 mm crochet hook, I made little friendship bracelets that were perfect for my daughter and her friend.
