Today we will try to learn how to do all the complicated decoration. If your ability to crochet a slightly above average, you will not be difficult to do.
First a short introduction to the materials. Don’t be afraid of the wire. It is the same material for knitting, as yarn or thread.The wire is of varying thickness and quality. I recommend using crochet wire thickness of 0.2 mm or 0.3 mm. It will easily fit in and you will not have any difficulty in working with it. For work, we definitely need a crochet hook. My advice, use the metal hook. I do not recommend working with drum Teflon or plastic. The Wire is metal, and it is necessary to work metal.At this thickness of wire and the desired quality of the canvas, I recommend using the hook for a maximum of 2 mm, or 1.75 mm.
So, let’s start. The tools and materials
2 Metal hook
3 Mix of beads
4 Metal clasp
5 CuttersTo create this bow I took the orange wire with a diameter of 0.3 mm. If you will not find a similar wire, you can take a thin copper wire, which is sold in any hardware store.

Prepare a mix of various beads of different shapes. I made a mixture of orange frosted glass beads, round beads and cubic forms of Yellow, Green and Orange colors. The more varied will be your mix, the more interesting work decoration. Strung mix onto the wire in two ways: or alternately stringing beads, or poured the whole mix in the outlet, just dial wire.
When you score the entire mix onto the wire, you should get a long string. It’s okay if you gain more. Better to remove the extra beads than to cut and add wire with beads and making not the desired node. Slightly pushing the beads from the start of work will start to knit. My measurements are, for example, you can do to adjust the width and length of the strip. So. Recruited crochet a starting chain of 7 loops, capturing within each loop of one bead. Further, knit cloth forward and reverse ranks of the grasping, each loop of the bead or the bead.
Our entire band is divided into several parts. On our strip, we have to do two section of the canvas without the beads, for a convenience of forming the bow.
When your line is connected, hide the tails of wire knitting or tucking in beads and then gently hide or bend the ends of the wire to the decoration is not injected when worn
Ready strip flattens with hands on a flat surface or you can use a small trick! Lay the strip on the surface and covering with a cloth, press it with a rolling pin. As if you rolled the dough. Just do it very carefully so as not to damage the beads.
After that, proceed to the Assembly.
Let us give the strip the form of a bow and pressing parts of the leaf without beading will receive a ribbon
Cut a small length of wire.Extending a wire through and fasten all parts of the canvas. Attach a decorative element. For decorating you can use the right color bead. But if not there some element, can on the front side using when connecting the remaining beads or beads. Simultaneously with the connection of the parts mount on the reverse side of the clasp to brooches.
All tails of wire will secure the right, threading the beads or beads.
When you are done, give your brooches the beautiful shape of the bow. Unable to expand a little cloth hands. Your bow ready. In addition to the Bow, you can also add earrings.
