Rose Wire Bangle-day 261

Posted on Mar 19, 2012 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

Wire crochet makes really elegant pieces, I have made several and will continue making it.  I did this piece using 28 gauge copper color (rose) wire as the canvass for the rivoli crystals and paper bead leaves and buttons.  If you already know crochet, don’t be intimidated to crochet with wire just treat it like it is yarn only more forgiving.  Any mistakes is easily hidden and unrecognizable even to a trained eye.


Taking ordinary to extraordinary!

Wire Lace Ring – day 214

Posted on Oct 22, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 3 comments

I would like to apologize for not being consistent in my posts, I have taken in more than I could chew so to speak so I ask for your patience and understanding 🙂  I would like to share with you a piece that is close to my heart just because I love anything crochet.  I had no intention of making a ring out of the wire lace I was working on, but then it was 3 am in the morning and when it is that late at night, anything goes 🙂


I crocheted 28 gauge wire measuring approximately 1 1/2 inches x 8 inches long and just folded them into layers and embellished them with beads.  This ring is not for the faint of heart 🙂

Two In One Medallion – day 197

An easy, elegant way to frame a cabochon or in this case the large saucer shaped beads is wire crochet.  The wire just conforms to the shape of the bead nicely, easy to manipulate to capture the cab or the bead.  The Crocheted Medallion is even more beautiful when accented with the crocheted wire.


The words that come to my mind to describe this: unique, one of a kind, conversation piece…….

Beaded Kumihimo – day 196

Posted on Aug 15, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

My last visit to jtv, I got the chance of meeting Anne Dilker, the Kamikaze of Kumhimo as she is aptly described by Kim the energetic host of jewel school. If you know me, I try to incorporate paper beads into everything.  I had fun making this Purple Pendant, but then I love anything in shades of purple:)


I think I did a tutorial about this from a home made kuhihimo disc.  I love the fact that you can bead the braid itself and it is a mindless task, something that you can do while watching tv or traveling.
