Riotous Garden Wire Crochet Bracelet

This, my first, wire crochet, wire worked bracelet is destined for my sis-in-lay, Audrey.

I came across a tutorial by Kristin St. Clair in the "Make It : Live from Tucson!" article found at Martha Stewart's the Craft Dept.

I was all ready to attempt a facsimile of that but I didn't quite like how it was finished. So this bracelet evolved. I made the wire worded flowers and leaves pretty much according to that tutorial. And then to give me a smoother and more finished look, I decided to go with making a wire crochet base. It is folded over after the flowers and stuff are woven in so that when the other half is folded over (which will lie against the skin) I have a perfect matching backing for looks and protection and the likelihood of bits of wire from the woven bits would not be poking into the wearer.

Approximate length: 19 - 19.5cm
Approximate Weight: 85grams


Materials

* brass wire - silver plated - 0.25mm dia (both for the wireworked flowers and the crochet)

* crystal leaves, metallic wooden beads, Czech teardrop beads, faceted crystals, gemstone chips, turquoise chips, butterfly slider (free gift from Crystal Flair)
