It was my first time knitting with wire, so theoretically, I'll just get better!  I'm not really sure how much wire I used.  But looking at the spool, I expect that I could probably get at least 6 or 7 bracelets out of a spool.

Even $30 sounds high to me!

Thanks everyone!  I've had a few people tell me that I should sell the bracelets.  Any suggestions for a price?  The wire is 32 gauge silver (don't think it's real), the beads are glass and it takes about 3 hours.

Thank you for your kind comments!

GIJane - I don't know how to crochet ... only knitting.  But I think that it would be the same.  It's a little more difficult because the wire is much stiffer than yarn..

SpielMitMir - Knitting or crocheting with wire is pretty much the same as with yarn.  Just slower.  I got the pattern in an e-mail, and thought that it was pretty. So I tried it!

706Designs - I didn't find casting on that difficult ... just slow!  The wire didn't really cut into the bamboo, though it has scratched it up a little bit.  I bought cheap bamboo needles from Michaels just for the wire knitting.

:O  That is awesome.  When do you put the beads on?

Thanks!  The beads go on while you knit.  You string the beads on the wire before you start knitting, and then as you knit each stitch you pull a bead up, and knit after it.  Hope that makes sense.  There's a pattern here - http://www.spunmag.com/article/050605bracelet

Yesterday was my youngest sisters' 30th birthday.  As part of her gift I made her this bracelet.  It's knit with 34 gauge silver wire on 3.5 mm bamboo needles.  The beads are glass.  I made a similar one for the knitting Craft Challenge, but I like this one a lot more!

Made the purse below for my youngest sisters' 30th birthday .. which was yesterday.  The fabric is black wool suiting and a fabulous shocking pink brocade from a great fabric store in Vancouver's little India.  We actually bought the fabric together last summer, and this was the first time that I used it!  She loved it!

Hi mickncrispy .... I really love both of your bags.  You've got a great eye for colour and design.  Great work!

I love it!  Great minds think alike!!

The width of yours is close to how wide I want to do my next one.  And I love how you added some random larger beads for interest.

Beautiful!

Thank you for the compliments!  I'm really happy with it, and think that I'll make the next one a little wider.

annette - I don't see why you couldn't knit each row.  I'm not a very good purler either, but I found that the wire actually made it a little easier ... usually the yarn slides all over the place, but you can pretty much "put" the wire wherever you wanted it.

rickrackruby - I use a Nikon Coolpix 5900, on a macro setting.
