Crochet Wire Bracelet



I made a visit to Joann Fabric and Crafts the other day and found some 26 gauge wire so I have been crocheting with it. I am doing well making chains but have not been very successful with a single crochet. What I did was to make 3 chains of 28 with a size H crochet hook and then I braided them together. I have lots of beads so I put a dragonfly on the front. The clasp is a bar that slips through the middle of an opening. The one I used is a heart. Once I was finished, my thought was that it might make a cute ankle bracelet or a choker.
There are a lot of possibilities that can be created with wire.

  1. Wow! That's a very pretty bracelet! I just can't imagine crocheting with wire... it seems like it'd be hard to do.

  2. Lauren,
    Since it is 26 gauge wire, it is a little more flexible. It was different.

  5. This is super cute! I love make chokers and cuffs but I use the crochet thread instead of the wire. Have you thought about using the Lame thread that is pretty much like a very fine wire. It comes in several colors. The one I bought is a silver. I am disabled so I opened an Etsy shop to help support myself and I sold a black cuff as well as a sage green and pink combo colored cuff. I am so grateful to all the people who post free patterns and advice. Teresa is the best that is online and I have searched every site going until all hours of the nite. God bless all those that take the time to teach others. I have been crocheting for 30 years but there is always something new to learn. Thanks again Teresa and God bless! :-)

  6. JoniCrochetCreations,
    Thank you. I have been wondering if there was some type of thread that would look like wire. What websites or stores carry the thread?

  7. Hi Teresa,
    I hope that you can delete some of my duplicated comments on this because I had computer problems and didn't realize that they had uploaded? I don't know if you can remove some of the repeating ones or not? The reason I am writing to you is to reply to your question on where to get the wire like yarn. It is called: Lamé and it comes in the following colors: Pearl Silver Black Gold Multi
    The 2 free easy crochet patterns to make necklaces are also on Lion Brand website: www.lionbrand.com
    Look under the Free Crochet Patterns and search for Lion Brand® Lamé
    Pattern #: 60043 or Crocheted Necklaces and then look for the patterns. They are very pretty!!
    Again sorry for the repetetive comments I have left on this topic?

  8. JoniCrochetCreations,
    I deleted two. You provided some very good information. The yarn companies are always coming up with some different yarn and thread that I have never seen. Thank you for the information.

  11. This is very pretty! The bar and heart is called a toggle clasp. I crochet and make jewelry and am always looking for new things that are unique. I love this! :) Good job. I also tried crocheting with 26 guage wire and the single crochet is very difficult. I am happy to know about eh Lame yarn also, thank you Joni and Teresa!
