"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

Crocheted Necklaces

Recently, I have been making crocheted jewelry because it is easy to travel with some thread, scissors, and a hook. My daughter and I saw some real diamond jewelry that was similar to the lay out of this one for thousands of dollars. I thought, why not make a thread version. So this is what I came up with
Each of these three flowers are doubled (flower on top of flower) which gives them a 3-d effect) The picture really doesn't do justice. In person , they really sparkle!
I bought a box of beads at an estate sale, so I decided to mix different shades of pink to make this 3-tiered necklace. Again, it sparkles much better in person. I wanted you to just get the concept of mixing crocheted thread with beads.
This pin-on  flower is by far my most favorite. I bought this sweater for my friend on her Birthday. Her personality really shines. The crochet thread is exactly the color and texture of the sweater. I sewed on a multi-faceted glass ball that looks like silver mercury glass. This too, shines in person better than in this picture.
I won't make this one again! I like it very much, but the measuring and balancing was no fun. The middle of this flower has a very old rhinestone pin that shines a mile away. This necklace looks great, however it was just an experiment of mine. I don't have patterns I just make them up as I go along. I am sure a common flower pattern could be googled if you are interested in making one.
Here is another view of the same necklace from above.
