I have been loving the wire bangle I made awhile back and wear it every chance I get! It goes just as nice with blue jeans as it does with a dressy outfit. If you missed it, you can click here for the free wire bangle pattern. So I wanted to try adding some beads to the pattern for a little variation and I love the result!! Here is the beaded wire crochet bracelet pattern if you’d like to try it too …
Beaded Wire Crochet Bracelet Pattern
Here’s what you need:
- 28 gauge wire
- approx 120 – size 6/0 seed beads
- F/3.75 mm hook
- wire cutters (I used my scissors, but it probably isn’t very good for them)

Notes: Beads are incorporated into your stitches on your last yarn over of a stitch. To do this, move the bead up to rest next to hook, then yarn over and pull through. For example, when chaining, you would move the bead up to the hook before making each chain. For a single crochet, you would insert your hook into the next stitch as usual and draw up a loop, then move bead up the wire to rest next to the hook, yarn over and pull through the 2 loops on hook.
The number of beads used will depend on how big you make your bangle. You may not use all 120 beads. I tried to overestimate so that you have enough on your wire. My bracelet only used 96 beads and measures approx. 7½ in. in circumference, with a beginning chain of 33.
Before beginning, thread all the beads onto your wire. Incorporating beads into your chain as described above, make a chain a little larger that the circumference of your wrist. Join in first ch to form a ring.
Round 1: Ch 1, incorporating beads into each stitch as described above, work 1 sc in each ch around, join.
Round 2: Ch 1, again incorporating beads into each stitch, work 1 sc in each st around, join.
Snip wire and fasten off as usual. Weave in the wires to secure and then try to fold the ends into themselves to keep them from poking you.
