1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: beaded wire bracelets - with tutorial!! on: June 17, 2009 09:15:39 AM
I found this tutorial a while back and tried making some of these bracelets.  I started off with plastic beads and decided that glass is my forte Smiley  I like to use 16 gauge wire for the bracelet form and 20 gauge for wrapping ... Anyhow, sorry I haven't posted anything sooner.  Here is a bracelet I made last night for my aunt for her birthday:

I guess I haven't posted enough times, so you can view it by the above links.  Many thanks to darcangel for this tutorial!

Simply gorgeous!  Great work Smiley  My grandma used to make these, and she's no longer with us ... It really makes me miss her Smiley  She left us, among other memories, a legacy of crocheted quilts!!!  Your family is sure to love that one Smiley

Just curious, my fellow Craftsters, if any of you all might know a decent affordable source for Swarovski crystals.  I have found some great bead sites on the web, but unfortunately, the shipping charges about override any savings.  If you know of anyplace, could you give a shout out?  Smiley  Thanks very much!

I have started making these after seeing them on this site.  They are so much fun to make, darcangel!  Thanks for posting the tutorial Smiley  I don't have a digital cam, but I will post any pics if I can borrow one.  I find that copper is good to work with, and so is coated copper ... They sell black wire that is actually coated copper.  I like to use 16 gauge for the "frame" and 20 gauge for the beaded rows.  I simply find it makes a very sturdy piece.  If you use all glass, they get a little heavy.  I like a combination of glass, plastic, and crystals!!!  Thanks again for this idea!  You're great!!!
