Got stone bead chips in your craft supply stash? Need a chic, stylish idea for using them in a jewelry-making project? If so, I invite you to be inspired by this red coral chip bead bracelet in wire crochet. You could make a bracelet just like this one if the project appeals to you — or you could use it as inspiration for creating a similar design if you prefer.
While the bracelet might appear complex at first glance, it’s actually one of the easiest wire crochet projects you’ll encounter. I don’t think of wire crochet as being an easy crochet technique, exactly; but as far as wire crochet projects go, this one isn’t too complicated.
You’re basically going to make three different beaded chains, like these:
Then you braid all three of the chains together to create the bracelet design.
All of this is spelled out in more detail in this crochet bracelet pattern, which is posted for free at the About.com Crochet site.
