"faberge" pearls cuff

freshwater pearls with gold (Artistic Wire) crochet cuff

just one of the goodies in store for christmas

PS: did you know that wire crochet is stretchy? and you can also make it smaller? since wire crochet is a mesh it will get longer if you pull it gently lengthways, and then shorten somewhat if you ease it back widthways. this is why my cuffs generally fit a wide range of wrist sizes. the only thing you shouldn't do with a wire mesh is bend it back and forwards repeatedly - then the wire undergoes metal fatigue, gets brittle and breaks :(
