Step 1: Materials
- thin gauge wire (Anything from 24-30 should be fine; too thin and your wire will snap very easily, too thick and crocheting will be very hard. I used 28 gauge silver-coated copper wire.)
- crochet hook (Any size will work, but the bigger the size, the bigger your crochet stitches. I used size I/9 -- 5.5mm.)
- pliers for cutting wire (scissors will also work because it's a thin gauge wire)
- OPTIONAL: beads
- NO PREVIOUS CROCHETING SKILL NECESSARY. The stitch I used is just a simple chain stitch, and it's not hard to learn.
Step 2: Beads
Step 3: Crochet
Start off by making a small loop, but be sure to leave a bit of wire as a tail for later. Just form a small circle with the wire and twist the wire to make the loop fixed. Then insert your hook into the loop.
Step 4: Crocheting
Because the wire is not as pliable as yarn, crocheting will be somewhat difficult at first. You might want to experiment on some scrap wire before starting this project, just to get a hang of looping and pulling.
Step 5: Crocheting with beads
Continue crocheting until you have the length that you want. BE CAREFUL NOT TO MAKE YOUR BRACELET TOO LONG; undoing stitches is really hard (to be honest, I'm not quite sure how you would..).
Step 6: Tying up loose ends
Then pull on the wire attached to the last loop and spool of wire so that the loop closes as much as it can. Don't pull too tightly because the wire can snap. Once you've done this, cut the wire attached to the spool and wrap it around the connection you just made. (see next step for more detail)
Step 7: Finishing
But if this happens to you, just bend the snapped part back and fiddle around until the end is well hidden. Poke the wire tail of the other end through the last loop (the one you just closed) before bending the wire back.
