I learned to crochet from good, old home economics class. I never really pursued this craft because for me, a simple project like a doily took forever to make. Now, I regret not having paid attention in class as I see a lot of jewellery incorporating beads on crocheted wire. I admire the artisans that create truly unique and intricate crochet jewellery pieces.
I attempted to make a few projects with wire crochet. I looked at online tutorials for instructions and ideas. Using beads from my collection, here are a few of my projects.

There was a lot of trial and error involved so it took a lot of patience, coupled with cuts and blisters along the way. But despite the challenge, I enjoyed making them as each piece is one of a kind.
