Would you believe this bracelet is crocheted? To my eyes, a piece like this doesn’t look much like crochet — but it definitely is, since the project was made using a crochet hook and crochet stitches. The difference is basically in the materials I used; instead of thread or yarn, I used wire to work the stitches.
Crochet stitches look different when worked in wire than they do when worked in yarn or thread. If you add chunky beads to the mix, like I did here, they can obscure the crochet work even more.
Want to see how to do projects like this in more detail? If so, there are a couple of pages that you might like to take a look at.
The first page I suggest is this bead and wire crochet tutorial, which will show you the basics of the technique.
I also recommend grabbing the free bracelet pattern that’s pictured here, or for that matter, any of our wire crochet patterns. Some of them include beads and some don’t. I think there’s a nice mix of patterns for you to choose from.
We’re planning to add even more links to our project gallery; if you’ve designed a wire crochet project that you’re proud of, and you would like to share it with our readers, please feel free to submit it for consideration.
