Elizabethan Cuff Revisited

I originally made the Elizabethan cuff in black, a really long time ago…  A couple of weeks ago I was asked to make a similar one using silver wire and gold beads… I forgot how hard it is to crochet with wire…. and after a few false starts and a lot of blisters :-) here is what I came up with:

Elizabethan Cuff – Silver and Gold

I did make some modifications from the original one, because from wearing the black one (a lot) I found that the crochet wire stretched quite a bit, so I made this one in a tighter knit to counter-act that stretch. Let me know what you think….

Also, I wanted to thank all of you who have left comments on my blog and apologize for not replying to these comments and for not always being able to comment back, and it’s not from lack of trying!!! but every time I go into my blog and a lot of others I get an “operation aborted” error message…. which makes it impossible for me to leave a comment on here and on some of the other blogs – apparently blogger is dealing with it… at least I’m still able to post (via Windows Live Writer) – so again…. sorry!!!!

Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead!!!


  1. i try to leave a message too, even my englich , it's not very well , congratulations for all your créations, and your elizabethan cuff is wonderfull, bravo;

  2. Lovely cuff Triz...delicate but yet substantial.


  3. It's gorgeous. I LOVE both of the cuffs, This one and the black one :O)

  4. I'm a big fan of wire crochet and I love this cuff!

  5. beautiful work. you might also want to try weaving a piece of 20ga wire in the piece, in 4 places, to add structure, as the wire even when using 26 ga, will bend and fold over upon it can easly make it into the design, and not show that it is necesary to the structure.
