I love making jewelery! However, I find it difficult to focus on just ONE thing for any length of time – LOL
Last fall I was drawn to a craft I hadn’t done in years – crochet – and I began to make scarves and dish cloths…anything to keep my hands busy.
One night as I sat in front of the TV crocheting the thought came to mind “I bet beautiful jewelry could be created by crocheting with fine gauge wire and shiny crystal beads.”
I thought I had stumbled onto something new – NOT!
After sitting for hours in front of my computer and Googling wire crochet I discovered a lot of people do this! But that didn’t stop me.
And wire crochet has become one of my favorite designs and one of my best sellers!
This bracelet was created with 24 gauge non-tarnish silver craft wire and 3mm Swarovski crystals.
A lobster clasp was used, but since I have been wearing it I have decided to switch out the clasp to either a toggle or magnetic clasp.
