Crocheted Seed Bead and Crystal Bangle

I really love how this bangle turned out.  I used size 8 seed beads and 4mm fire-polished glass beads crocheted in a 6 bead round. Because of the larger fire-polished size, the seed beads have to angle around a bit to frame them which gives this bangle a pretty unique look.  I used crochet cotton size 10 in silver to match the main background.

I saw this pattern in an issue of Crochet Today and had to make it.  Luckily, my sister's birthday was coming up so I jumped at the opportunity.  Very, very easy, just took a bit longer than expected. But I love how the bottom ruffles because of the longer stitches.
