Filigree Bracelet Embellished w/paper beads

You can buy these filigree bracelet findings but you can also just make them or crochet them. If you already crochet then this would just come easy to you. It is same as crocheting yarn or thread except you are doing it with wire. The wire you will be using for wire crochet should be 28 gauge or higher if you are just a beginner or if you have delicate hands because the wire could be tough on your hands but not the 28 gauge or 30 gauge wire.

I crocheted this with two 28 gauge wire held together, it holds up its shape more when you do it this way.  This is a fairly simple design made with single crochet and double crochet.


These non tarnish wire comes in an array of colors but I prefer working with silver or gold.  You can also make these in silver or gold filled wire but I advise you to practice first with craft wire.



This bracelet is made by making two strips of a simple chain with tiny paper beads and then I sewed the two strips together with seed beads.


I made this necklace (this is actually on my etsy shop), much like the one above except I braided three strips together.


My next post will be a tutorial on wire crochet.
