PATTERN DETAILS

This is the second in a series of earring patterns to be published. You will need to know the listed skills to use these instructions. If you feel unsure about your ability, I suggest you purchase Crocheted Wire and Bead Earrings: One. The directions are very detailed and will assist you as you need for this project. I refer to the first pattern's step numbers throughout this pattern. At the end of this pattern, I give ideas for variations and site my sources for materials. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Crocheting with wire Making an eye loop (I use a double-wrapped.) Attaching an ear wire Braiding GAUGE With an "I" hook, you should get about 4 stitches to the inch. This is not so important because it will not affect the wear-ability of the piece. Consistent stitch size is very important. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS These earrings are 2-1/2" long and nearly 1/2" wide

Recommended with this pattern

  • 2-1/2 yds. 26 gauge silverplated wire ( I used ParaWire). More will be needed if you want to practice.

Crocheting wire with beads has become my passion, one that I enjoy immensely. I like the artisan look achieved through this technique, which allows for endless design possibilities. "If only my grandmother could see me now!" is a thought that often crosses my mind as I crochet jewelry pieces. As a child, she taught me to crochet with yarn. As a matter of fact, both of my grandmothers and my great-grandmother were avid crocheters, creating many heirlooms. They would be astonished to see crocheting done with wire and beads and the beautiful results one can achieve. I hope my patterns will inspire you to create your own beautiful pieces!
