Counting Bracelet

Here is a little counting bracelet I made for GranddaughterStitches.  It was quite easy.  I simply bought some numbered beads in a local bead store. 

Then I added these colorful beads (above) in between each numbered bead.  I strung it all on elasticized beading cord, which is kind of like stretchy fishing line.

Here is the finished bracelet, before I attached the two ends together.  I needed to wait till GranddaughterStitches was actually here, so I knew how big to make it.

And here it is on her little wrist.  You can see that I added quite a few beads to make it fit over her hand.  And I could have made the numbers go higher, except I hadn't bought any more number beads.  GranddaughterStitches is so good at counting that she may be past eleven already!


  1. Humm.... maybe the next one is the alphabet? Very sweet.

  2. That's a very good idea, Sweet Harmony! Thanks!

  3. She would love the alphabet! Or maybe her name! I think I forgot to tell you that she got a best friend necklace from Alyssa! (The one where she has one half of the necklace and Alyssa has the other)
