Very cute bracelet. Is it hard to crochet on wire?

 

:manyheart

 

Thank you CLLinda. :clap

 

Hmm... I've been making wire crochet bracelets for about 5 years and in my personal experience... no it's not hard. You want to use a high gage wire, like a 30 or 32 gage. But if you make a boo boo... there is no pulling it out, like you can with yarn. I use a 26 gage, because I pull on the wire a lot making the bracelets.

 

Thanks again and have a super day. :yay

I also used over 75 Swarovski Crystals in the following colors: Smoked Topaz, Lime and Topaz

 

I crocheted each crystal individually to artistic wire and attached a sterling silver toggle clasp... I am having to much fun with these crystals :yay

Beautiful and knowing how Swarovski Crystals, I bet it is even more beautiful in person! It does always look a little difficult to me too. I want to give it a try but..... like you said, there is no pulling it out and trying over with wire like you can do with yarn. I just love the results though! Someday I have to try!
