Crochet Steam Punk Necklace pattern

I started playing with wire a few years ago before my blog and while I was going through old photos I found this fun project and I wanted to share with everyone how easy this is to make!

Supplies:
NON WOOD crochet hook size I ( the wire can and pretty fancy hooks don't mix)
1 spool of copper wire any gauge you desire however stick to 18-28 gauge
findings, I used a lobster clasp but and will do
Gear charms
*optional Blow torch, I used a mini one from my creme brulee kit.
I found everything at my local craft store in the jewelry section
3 in 1 jewelry tool * however my my first few I used sharp scissors and needle nose pliers *

They now have these kits which are cool  to use instead.

put about half of you gears in a random order on your wire, randomly pull one up as you chain. I pulled one up about every other chain except for the first and last 4 chains
start by making a slip knot leave about 6-8 inches before the slip knot
* this will feel awkward
now chain  24 to 26 inches depending how long you want it, the picture shows a 24 inch one leave 6 inches and pull the wire through the last chain made

Put the other half of your charms  *minus any you may want to dangle as shown in the photo* on the wire
Repeat the above steps make another chain that is 2 inches longer

twist the longer chain around the other, twist the ends real tight and weave and crimp them onto your findings, weave in your ends and trim.
using rings and a 3 in one tool attach the charms you want to dangle

*I used cooper wire, I took the project outside on cement ( PLEASE have a bucket of water, be careful and don't let children do this) I hammered it a few times and blow torched it to make it look aged .. However don't torch it took long or it will break!


What do you think of crochet wire?

 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
