Not too confident about your wire work skills? Never fear, there is always a way of getting the wire work look without too much effort. This chain and pearls bracelet tutorial by Allison over at Dream a Little Bigger.
Allison used hardware store chain. But you could also practice making links of your own using bail forming pliers. The bail forming pliers is one of the most useful tools you can get beyond the basic ones like chain nose, round nose and flush cutters.
She fed the wire through the links. You could also wire wrap the pearls securely in place with wraps on the chain before and after each bead. Build up the design by adding more than just 1 row of pearls ie wind more wires through the chain.
Also see the last link below for a fabulous alternative.
