Crochet wire bracelet


This is for my group of sisters/sister in law that were so charming and had so much fun taking my necklace class...here are the instructions

Keep the wire on spool and unwind approximately 10".
String approximately 10-12 beads onto the wire.
Make a simple loop in the wire, leaving a tail of about 4".
Holding the tail of the wire in the same hand as your crochet needle, carefully slide the needle through the center of the loop.
Working loosely with each wire pull, wrap the long end of the wire over the crochet then pull through the loop. Repeat this step until you have four loops.
Pull a bead from the spool until it is right next to the crochet hook, bring wire up and over the crochet hook, catch it in the hook and pull it through the loop, trapping the bead inside the stitch. Repeat until all beads are used.
Create four more loops on the end.
Cut wire from spool, leaving a tail of about 4".
Repeat steps two more times, so that you have a total of three beaded wire crochet strands.

Remember that instead of using a jump ring, finish your bracelet as you do the necklace and I think it will be more secure that way!

Using a jump ring, insert the ends of all three strands together. Repeat on other side.
Add a loop and toggle to complete your bracelet.
