All wired up

So as promised here are the photos of my first attempt at knitting with wire. Actually sounds like it should be a reality show on the telly doesnt it. Taking photos of jewellery is actually harder than photographing bags but i had a go anyway.

The bracelet is actually just made out of plain knit using a 28 guage jewellery wire which has then been folded over 3 times and sewn to give it thickness. The outlining beads on sewn on at the end. To have a beaded effect running all the way through it the beads would be added on as you go.

I have purchased a french Dolly to knit a long wire rop with which i can then either stuff with beads or silk cord to form a chocker or bangle. I am really excited by this actually. I think the effect of the wire is stunning and different from the normal beaded jewellery. Please let me know what you think.

  1. Hi Joanna,
    French Dolly’s are really good for this and fun to use. My husband bought me a wire knitting jewellery kit for my birthday but I have not started it yet. It also uses a dolly, better have a look at it.
    The braclet has turned out really well and I love the colour.

  2. That’s looking great. Good idea.

  3. I know nothing about this at all, but it looks good to me.

  4. It really looks stunning. I can’t imagine knitting with wire though.
