  • Help Needed For my wire crochet bracelets

    Hi all
    I hope someone may be able to help me, as I have just crocheted a beaded wire frame to make into a bracelet.It is about 71/2" long and about 3" wide and for my first attempt looks ok OH thinks it looks very pretty so will take his word LOL.......
    I am struggling to work out how to put some sort of fastener onto it,so I am looking for any IDEAS.Hopefully I can then finish it and show you my very first crochet bracelet.
    Many thanks
    Jacki

        Why not make your own S clasp with wire? Not sure a bolt ring is elegant enough for this type of bracelet. The picture on goldy1 link with the bolt ring, I think, lets the bracelet down IYKWIM.
        Or maybe use a toggle clasp?

        Ok I'll admit it, I am not a fan of bolt rings at all!!!!!!

          I make three strands of single crochet and plait them together losely. I then twist the ends together and add a circle and bar fastener, cant think for the life of me what they are called (been to the pub). I loop it through half inch from the end and twist it back on itself.

              Toggle clasp! lol

              I have word finding difficulties after visiting the pub too, must be something they put in the water.....

              There are these fellas too, I think they look quite good on a "cuff" style bracelet

                Hi Pebbles

                Many thanks for your help, I was chuckling at your description of the toggle clasp,did you have a good night.Can't remember what the inside of a pub looks like....lol.....kids hey!!!!!
                Looked at the other clasps and I think these would be the right size , but I'm wondering if I have already crocheted the piece how to attach these.Do you think I should crochet these onto the ends.Any ideas would be appreciated.
                Thanks
