Up Knitted Earrings Jewellery Wire Findings Web Specials Pre-Knitted Kits

Organic and 3D Knitted Wire Jewellery £5

Knitting This new pattern contains 2 styles of necklace, a bracelet and 4 styles of earrings all with lots of variations. The blue, green and red earrings at the bottom of the photo are 3D in shape - almost round. The little pink and silver heart shapes are flat and great for using on greetings cards. The Purple earrings in the centre are curved in both dimensions and the spirals are, well, spiral!

The ombre beads necklace is made from knitted wire and the beads are encase in a fine pre-knitted wire tube with glass beads or knots separating them. The purple necklace and bracelet in the centre are Fairisle knitting in wire. ALL made on a KNITTING MACHINE

Knitted Wire Bracelets

Wire Jewellery Pattern for Bracelets, Necklaces and 2 styles of earrings £5

Knitting with wire often results in a very stiff creation, but by using Erica’s innovative technique you can create a very fluid like feel to the knitted strips which when braided together have very tactile quality.
You’ll need the pattern, some wire, some clasps to neaten the ends, your choice of closure and a standard gauge knitting machine.

The pattern is 7 pages long and packed with information on how to knit the strips, tips for knitting with wire, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Also includes many variations with clear diagrams. There is a very good close up 7”x5” photograph on the front.

The wire is available in around 30 colours at present. It is easiest to knit straight from the reels, so choose 4 reels (£3 each or 4 for £10) You could choose 4 toning colours to obtain a subtle blend of similar shades or you could choose 4 completely different colours which you could put together in different combinations to achieve a very wide variety of colours.

As short lengths are needed to knit the strips for the bracelets and necklaces, it is easy enough to wind off lengths from your reels so you can use several strands of the same colour together. With just 4 reels of wire you can make 35 different colour combinations. If you choose 8 reels, you would have 330 different combinations!

Delicate Lacy wire Necklace and Earrings £7

This design is sold as a  kit, including instructions, gilt wire and findings. You can make one necklace and a pair of earrings from the wire included. Extra wire is available for £2 for the same cut length.
It is a very delicate looking necklace and requires this particular type of wire to keep its shape.
Note - This design first appeared at the Nottingham Knitting Show in 2011, but it has only appeared here on the website since April 2012.

Gilt wire 0.2mm 25metre coil £2 This is good to knit single strand.

“Scrumpleknit” necklace and "Scribble" Earrings £5

This is an unusual and quirky design for a knitted wire necklace. So called because the finished necklace can be gathered up and crushed in your hand to keep it's "crumpled" look. I have included 2 designs for earrings in the pattern. One is quite a simple design pictured on the cover and the other design is called “Scribble” earrings because the wire is randomly knotted into loose dangly earrings - each pair unique! (See below)

Note - This design first appeared at the Nottingham Knitting Show in 2010, but it has only appeared here on the website since April 2012.
