I wanted to to try something new with crocheted jewlery. I've made several pieces with wire, but I wanted to try something else. I made this necklace with five stands of crochet cotton, made with a slip stitch. The focal piece is made of peyote stitch with a fringe attached.
I made this necklace with a focal piece from a broken bracelet, smoke coloured glass beads, and new jet black glass bicones. In total, it probably cost me around $4.50 to make. I'm kinda proud how it turned out.
My DIL makes polymer clays beads, and was good enough to let me have some to bead with. The tan and black and white beads are the ones she made. They are really very nicely made, and you would be hard pressed on looking at them to see that they are hand made. I had fun putting this necklace together, I just wish I could make beads like this.
I have way too many beads in my stash, so I decided to make this necklace and bracelet using up some of my orphan beads. The centre of the necklace is crocheted, then hung on a chain. I used memory wired for the bracelet. Some beads came from old necklaces that I had remade, some are new beads. Hope you like.
