An easy and beautiful jewelry project, using simple crochet techniques, thin wire, and beads to create a really stunning jewelry piece!
Step 1: Supplies
26 guage or 30 guage craft wire
Necklace closure, such as toggle set, lobster clasp, ribbon, etc.
Wire cutters or scissors
Small tip pliers, such as basic needle nose pliers or jewelry pliers if you have them.
Ruler or tape measure
For the specific pieces that I've made in the photos, I've used the following items:
-26 gge Darlee Craft Designer Permanently Colored Copper Wire, siver plated (for the necklace with blue pearls), or Gun Metal color as shown with the white pearls
-30 pearls for the necklaces (the navy pearls I used were 5mmx7mm, the white pearls are fresh water pearls in assorted sizes up to 10mm)
-12 10mm grey pearls for the bracelet
-small decorative bead caps if desired for covering the ends of your necklace or bracelet
-One metal toggle set with 2 small decorative metal beads for the necklace closure
-US H/ 5.0mm hook used. Size isn't critical, any medium sized hook will work.
-4 feet of 3/4" wide ribbon
Helpful: a bottle to hold your wire while you crochet.
