Here's my submission!

A little while ago I got an e-mail from one of the many knitting groups that I belong to and it had a pattern in it for knitting a bracelet from silver wire and beads!  This challenge was my impetus to give it a try and I have to say that I'm pretty pleased with the results.

I had originally intended the first bracelet as a 30th birthday gift for my sister, but now I think I'll keep the first one!

Credit for the pattern must go to Marnie Stockman of http://www.frivolousfibers.com.  The pattern can be found here - http://www.spunmag.com/article/050605bracelet.  Working with the wire was tricky, and not terribly friendly on the hands! But once I got the hang of it, it went pretty quickly (about 2 hours).

Here are the pics!

that's really sharp! 
a question--the directions say to purl every stitch with beads, but is there a reason one couldn't knit every stitch, instead?  i'm a lame-ass purler, and it seems like it would be easier to purl without a bead in there confusing things.  Tongue

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.
