Knitting with wire

I'm developing a new obsession...sorta. Still knitting related but knitting with wire and beads instead of yarn.

I made this bracelet above for my friends birthday. Nothing too spectacular, but very fun to experiment with. The wire is just beading wire (28 gauge) and the beads are just a Czech Glass Mix. I wrote down the pattern and it's posted on Ravelry if you're interested in making one. Super easy.

After this bracelet, I still have wire and beads left over. So I experimented a bit making a pendant.

It's cute. I'll be wearing it next time I have to dress up for work. I still have wire and beads left (along with an older stash I have from jewelry kicks in the past) I'll be experimenting some more.
