This is my first attempt at crocheting with wire.  I crocheted two different strands of 34 gauge craft wire with an I hook, incorporating a mix of turquoise colored beads, then twisted the two strands together and added on the end clasps.   I love the result, considering it only took about 15 minutes start to finish and the beads were on clearance at A.C. Moore for 99 cents.

Thanks for the reply.

To explain how I did it further, I used a steel hook, size I, and a wire that I thought would be pliable and easy enough to bend.  If you can crochet a chain, then you can do this. Thread all the beads you'll use onto the wire first.  You can put more than you think you'll need just to be on the safe side.  Chain a few without any beads to start out, and then when you want to incorporate a bead, just slide it up the wire until it's resting against your hook and grab the wire above it and pull it through.  You can make as many strands as you want and braid or twist them together, or just lay them flat.  It's really easy, just do a little trial and error first.
