A while ago I've never even heard of crocheting with beads (until I came across crafty_dame's necklaces), let alone crocheting wire with beads. Lips sealed But when I had to make a new watch strap, I decided to try this technique and I'm quite pleased with the outcome. Smiley (I don't make/wear jewelry, but I make/wear watch straps. Haha.)



A lot of it was trial and error, eg. the length, amount/density of beads, what kinda stitches/how to crochet, fastener, uh ... everything, basically. Grin The strap isn't too rough on the skin, although it feels a little wire-y still. Tongue But I like how it looks and am glad I actually have a wearable watch now. Cheesy (Lost one watch, and the other's strap was falling apart...)

What a wonderful idea, it looks great.  Better than a store bought any day.

Very pretty.  I wouldn't think that wire would be very crochet-able but you pulled it off well!

Thanks everybody! ^_^ The wire was 0.3mm jewelry wire I found at an art store, didn't buy it for this project but it was quite nice to work with. Smiley

My friend bought the watch face for me from the US (I can never find such cool stuff in my country! Sad ), it was super nice of her. Cheesy

I love it, it's so bright and colourful and cheery. I'm sure it'll get a lot of compliments when you're wearing it!  Smiley

That looks really cool! I love it, but is it uncomfortable on your wrist?
