Good morning. I added another skill to my jewelry making talents. Monday at bead group we learned to crochet with wire and seed beads. I always thought that it would be difficult to keep stitches even and I thought that I would kink the wire. I was wrong on both thoughts. It's easy and evenness of stitches is not required. This bracelet was fun to make. Another bonus of wire crochet is that it can be scrunched or stretched to fit the person. Sizing is not as critical as with other bracelets where a 1/4" can make a big difference in the fit. I realize that this example is a first attempt and I will get better. I also plan on using some larger beads so that the beads are more the focus not the wire. Enjoy.


  1. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my Memories and Thanks blog post. I really love this bracelet, and think it is the perfect balance of bead and wire. So lucky to get it so well on the first try; awesome job!

  2. Thanx Mona, I've wanted to do this for a while. Lori just gave me the opportunity it set the time aside and not make excuses.
