Crochet Over Silver Stacking Bangle Bracelets

Remember Madonna, back in the 80s, when she wore the armful of bracelets? Even if you're not old enough, you know what I'm talking about.

All of us tweens / teens wore big bows in our hair and arm loads of bracelets, lol! So I was tickled to find a big stack of silver bangles at the thrift store recently. Ummm, 39 of them! They look similar to these:

These are gorgeous. Mine are tarnished and dull. So I crocheted over mine with cotton thread.

Some of them had cute sparklies on them. I just added hooks to them, I think they make adorable over sized earrings.

So that makes 10 bracelet upcycles. 29 more to go! Yay!!
