Knowledge of basic crochet needed.
Project List: 28 or above gauge wire in any color
lots of beads crochet hook(small one)
I have made crochet bracelets for a while now. I even entered some at the local fair and won some ribbons. You will need to buy a whole spool of wire for this. After I open the spool I thread all the beads onto it because you won't be able to thread the beads after you started crocheting. I did the basic single crochet stitch and added a bead every other stitch. On the bracelets I stitch them together when I'm done so they are slide on bracelets. The necklace I haven't finished the closure but will be putting some type of clasp closure. There are precautions -don't wear these with chiffon fabric or any other delicate fabric. It might snag even if you do the best job on these. Also, test the wire on your skin-some people might break out with the metal on their skin.
