Crystazzi glass pearls, Swarovski crystals and silver tone open weave beads make up this simple, yet elegant bracelet. Of the three bracelets I gave to my soon-to-be daughter-in-law for her birthday, she chose this one as her favorite.

Mother of Groom Pearl Bracelet


Mother of the Groom Pearl Bracelet

After many years of dating, my son and his girlfriend are finally getting married. My soon to be daughter-in-law, Chelsea, has honored me not only with accepting me as her mother-in-law, she is wearing the wedding veil my mother made for me over forty years ago AND she is allowing me to make her a bracelet to wear at the wedding. I found three bracelets that I thought she would like, so instead of asking her to choose, I decided to make all three. To night is her birthday dinner, so I am going to present all three of them to her. My favorite is this one I have aptly named Mother of Groom Pearl Bracelet.


This is a very simple but eloquent design consists entirely of rhinestone spacers, pearls and a clasp. I used Beadalon Wildfire .15mm bead weaving thread to string the beads in an alternating pattern of two pearls then a spacer bar on both rows.  To complete this bracelet, you will need beading string,  a needle ( I use large eye), a clasp, ten spacers and 44 pearls. I used 6mm pearls, but really any type of pearl or crystal or bead will work.

I’m going to start working on these beaded yellow and black Kumihimo bracelets for M-I-Z-Z-O-U as soon as I can. I’ve got the materials to make three. I’m not sure if I’m going to do them all in black and yellow spirals or if I am going to do one mostly yellow with a little black, one mostly black with a little yellow and one black and yellow spiral. I’m thinking maybe two spirals and one yellow with black. Hmmm.
