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.

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! :-D

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

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! :D

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.

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.
