How to Crochet Wire Jewelry

This is super simple and quick. I’m going to assume in this tutorial that you already know the basics of crochet, including how to create a slip knot, slip stitch and chain stitch. If not, there are many YouTube videos on how to do these things, or I could create some tutorials if you like. Just let me know, as I’m already considering doing so!

The essence of what I’m doing here is just chaining and occasionally sliding a bead down and continuing to chain. Easy.

So here is a step-by-step tutorial of how to crochet wire jewelry:

Start with: Size 0 crochet hook (or any, as the size doesn’t really matter), beads of your choice and wire. I used nylon-coated beading wire, which is flexible and doesn’t kink up too much. You can use regular wire if you prefer.

ROUND 1: Create a slip knot. Place onto your hook:

Next, you’re going to chain 10 and slide a bead down to your hook.

Now, chain 10 again and slide another bead down.

Repeat (chain 10, slide bead down) twice more, or until your chain wraps loosely around your wrist and can slide easily over your hand.

Slip stitch to the beginning of your chain to form a ring.

Now. ROUND 3: Chain 13, slide a bead down.  Chain 10, slide a bead down, Chain 10, slide a bead down, Chain 10, slide a bead down. Slip stitch to the 3rd chain at the begging of ROUND 3.

    Absolutely love your design & excellent presentation! I have a question about the overall function of the bracelet for getting on and off your wrist…is it the give in the stitching that lets it slide over the wrist and will it keep its shape over time with the stretching on and off? Thanks so much! <3
