Ministry of Craft – Knit it now: Stunning wire beaded jewellery
Inclusive Material Costs: £5.00
Skill Level: Advanced beginner
So you can cast on and off and create a knit stitch, but which exciting project do you pick next? Here’s one we challenge you to resist – a gorgeous knitted wire bracelet and matching ring or brooch strewn with sparkly beads, perfect for a night on the tiles.
Our ever creative tutor, Rachael, will teach you how to knit with wire, starting with a bracelet, and the skill of attaching the beads. Knit with a variety of coloured wires and choose from our selection of beads, ranging from sparkly glass to classy pearls.
Finally finish off by using basic jewellery making skills to attach your bracelet closure and ring back or brooch back to your chosen matching accessory. Walk out wearing your creations and no-one will ever believe you made them in just 3 hours!
