Wire Crochet Bracelet w/ Bead Flowers

Ok so it’s not quite knitting, but…

This bracelet is for a swap I’m participating in on another forum. I really wanted to get feedback on this but I didn’t want to risk ruining the surprise for my swap partner; I’m 99.9% sure she doesn’t come here, so I guess this is as safe as it gets. :wink:

It’s crocheted with 28g gold-fill wire with a big assortment of beads: Swarovski crystals, jade, green aventurine, iolite, howlite, amethyst, garnet, carnelian, mother of pearl, rhodonite, blue quartz and yellow jasper.

Thanks for looking! :smiley:

You don’t by chance sell your jewelry, do you? Someone I know is looking specifically for crocheted wire jewelry.

Wow, absoulutely beautiful!! :inlove:

Wow! That is awesome. I have seen other crochet jewelery but that is the most beautiful!

How did you attach the beads? Did you string them all on the wire first?

Thanks, everyone! :smiley:

Ronda – I do sell my jewelry sometimes. I did more custom work than I sold pre-made ones because I like to try to make something just so for them. :slight_smile:

Callmesusan – I randomly pre-strung the green beads, and sc’ed them on pretty randomly too; I wanted them to be more or less evenly distributed, but not perfectly spaced. The flowers I made seperately then wired them on after the main body of the bracelet was done.

Isnt it funny how after youve worked with a certain craft for so long that your not sure if something “looks right”. heh I know with certain things I design I know its cool to me, but not sure if it is still pleasing to an outsider.

Its gorgeous! What a lucky pal you have!

It beautiful!! I’ve been wondering if crocheting beading wire would be difficult–but you make it SOUND easy!! I love the flowers --now I’m going to check your blog!! COngratulations–your swap pal should be thrilled! :thumbsup:

OK - Am I just being really dumb? Where is the blog???

That bracelet is absolutely gorgeous - I’d like to look at the other bits on the blog too now :smiley:

Can some one point me in the right direction?
