Bead chips and wire crochet go together like peanut butter and jelly. Why? I think it has something to do with the fact that bead chips are delightfully irregular, and wire crochet stitches are too — and the two types of textures complement each other perfectly.
If you haven’t yet tried crocheting with beads and wire, this project could be a great way to get started with the technique. While I wouldn’t call it an easy project, exactly, it is extremely forgiving of mistakes and irregularities. Another good starter project is this bead and wire crochet napkin ring, which is a bit less complicated — plus there is a step by step photo tutorial, so you can see the technique stepped out in pictures. This bracelet is made using basically the same technique, so the tutorial is worth a look even if you don’t plan to make napkin rings.
