Magazine Color Rounds

I am always amazed at the Philippine women who patiently rolled these little round beads.  I think I have more fun with the little beads because you can make them into intricate designs.  You can crochet with them, spiral stitch or wire wrap them into flowers and twigs.  I made these cuff bracelets awhile back just did not have the time to post them, one of the challenges in maintaining a blog:)


I love to crochet with wire, I know it seems daunting but it is actually easy and more forgiving compared to regular crocheting with yarn.


When I crochet with wire, it is always in free form.  I also love the fact that it can expand and you just need to scrunch it up and it goes back to its original form


If you already know how to crochet or even if you don’t, all you need is learn the basic chain stitch.  I used 28 gauge wire, otherwise it will be tough to manipulate the wire.



  1. I Love these too! Ok…I’m going to have to learn how to wire crochet with my paper beads now! Another great idea Janice! Going to your you tube videos because I know you did a tutorial on wire bead crochet. I also Love your other wire crochet bracelet with the ruby color stone.

  2. I love these! So alluring!
