Yes, I’m still playing with the crochet wire … I hope you’re not sick of seeing it yet because I’m actually loving it! This time I tried adding some beads to wire to make these pretty medallion earrings. Very fun!
Wire Medallion Earrings
Here’s what you need:
- 30 gauge Nickel Silver wire
- D hook
- 48 – size 6/0 seed beads
- a pair of ear wires
- 2 crimp beads
Click here to reference the Crochet Abbreviations Chart.
Beaded Single Crochet (bsc): Insert hook into specified stitch and draw up a loop, move bead up the wire to rest next to hook, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook.
Beaded Double Crochet (bdc): Yarn over, insert hook into specified stitch and draw up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, move bead up the wire to rest next to hook, yarn over and pull through remaining 2 loops on hook.
Thread 24 beads onto your wire.
Round 1: Ch1 (does not count as stitch), work 8 bscs in 2nd ch from hook, join — 8 sts.
Round 2: Ch 2, move 1 bead up to hook, ch 1 (counts as 1st dc), work 1 bdc in same st as join, work 2 bdc in remaining sts around, join — 16 sts.
Fasten off leaving a tail of approx. 6 inches.
Add a crimp bead to the tail. Weave tail through the ear wire and back through the crimp bead. Flatten crimp bead to secure tail. Cut tail right after crimp bead.
Lovely! Just love crocheting with wire also, but have problems with the crimp beads eventually cutting through my wires 🙁 any advice?
I’ve been meaning to try crocheting & knitting jewelry for a long time….this tutorial is one I think I MUST try! 😀
