Cathy creates beautiful bead crochet bracelets for every age and size using a variety of glass beads, Swarovski crystals, pearls and sterling silver. While stylish, the bracelets are comfortable to wear, stackable, and durable.

Each unique bracelet is individually crocheted for you using only the highest quality, most reliable and eye-appealing materials. The bracelets are made by stringing hundreds of beads, one-by-one, on strong synthetic thread. The threaded beads are then hand crocheted into a flexible, comfortable fabric tube, leaving a bead in every stitch. An invisible and secure seam is sewn to join together the two ends.

Cathy also creates bracelets that represent foundations and then donates the proceeds to the cause. She has been able to use profits to donate thousands of dollars for many different charities, among them the National Down Syndrome Society. See Cathy's Creations here.
