So if you'd had a beading needle, how long do you think making that would've taken? I ask because since you've posted this, that bracelet won't get out of my head!

The beading took me several nights (hour here, hour there), but I used a piece of tape wrapped around the yarn to get the beads on. Had to replace the tape every so often and well, don't try this at home. It's yucky.

However, get yourself a beading needle and it would be a breeze. There were 7 beads per inch and I had over 6 feet worth. You can do the rest of the math.

Also, there are bead "hanks" which are beads that are already strung, so the transfer of those would be even easier. For all of those that have little patience, I wish you the best in your bead hank shopping endeavors.

The bracelet itself, took a couple nights, but don't forget I have a 2 and half year old, so it wasn't straight knitting.

I would say that you could have it done in a day to three days tops.
