August - Knitted Wire Bracelet

Ever since I saw the Nancie Weissman on Knitty Gritting knitting with wire I've wanted to give this a try. So, I did this weekend. So here's my August first time entry.

I pulled out my wire, beading supplies and some needles that I didn't care if they got scratched up and made this lovely bracelet.

Materials Used:
#4 needles
a crochet hook of the right size
#26 gauge wire
some beads
basic clasp

Go back to my blog post here and you can get a basic tutorial to make one for yourself.

Here's another one I made on Saturday.

The Specs:
#28 or smaller gauge wire (I'm not sure what size it was as it no longer labeled in my stash)
lots and lots of seed beads
#1 needles
a clasp and jump ring

All I did for this one is cast on 7 sts and knit back and forth pushing up a bead every time.

I'm not very happy with the closure on this bracelet but I ran out of wire at the end. Because the wire is so thin I worry over time this will break. I would much rather this be closer to the knitted part of the bracelet I think it would be stronger.

Over all I am not much of a jewelry person. So I wasn't sure if I liked the looks of these bracelets but they are growing on me. I do think these might make a great gift for my teenage nieces. I just might make a few more a few for myself to get in touch with my inner diva.

I'm the sort of guy who passions to taste radical things. Presently I am manufacturing my hold solar panels. I'm making it all by myself without the assistance of my staff. I'm using the net as the only path to acheive this. I discovered a truly amazing site which explains how to build photovoltaic panels and so on. The web site explains all the steps involved in solar panel building.

I am not sure bout how precise the information given there is. If some experts over here who have xp with these works can have a look and give your feedback in the page it will be awesome and I'd highly value it, cauze I extremely lav solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. You people rock.
