This bracelet is beautiful. Beading needles are definitely your friends. If I had to use a makeshift stringing contraption, the bracelet would be one of my many UFO's.

A quote from my blog about the beading needles:

it's got a name Magic Eye or Big Eye something like that, costs $1.00 or $1.50 (I was charged a different price on the 2nd one I bought!) and it's just a big flexible wire thingy that makes it much easier to get the beads on.

Beldie --

I've had everything I need -- including a beading needle -- to make one of these for a VERY long time now. It's one of those things that keeps getting shoved to the end of the Projects I Want To Do list.

Yours is lovely!! And LOOK ... it's something we have in common. ;-)

absolutely stunning Beldie! A friend of mine at work was making that earlier last year...I wonder if she ever finished hers :thinking: I think she strung all her beads by hand too

Here's a very easy & quick way to get lots of beads strung...

Providing that you're strining the beads on to your yarn BEFORE you knit... thread your big eye needle with your yarn. Dump your beads into a container, and repeatedly jab your needle into the dish, letting beads fall onto the needle. Turn upright, let beads slide down the needle, onto your yarn... repeat.

This works better if the container is small enough that you have a good inch of beads, but wide enough that most of the needle will fit into the container. Those big magic eye/big eye needles that are flexible make very quick work of this. They're a little pricey, but WELL worth it if you have 6 feet of bead stringing to do!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! That bracelet is definitely on my "to do" list. Yours turned out fabulous. I bet you get tons of compliments when you wear it -- and how cool to tell everyone that you made it yourself!!
