I haven't posted here for a long long time, but I was looking through my summer projects and thought that I'd show them off a lot.  



pattern available on my etsy


I still have to block this one.  maybe I'll do that today and take new pictures when it's done


this one is crocheted... I used a transparent nylon line.  I've sold a couple of these and everyone who sees the one I wear often loves it.  I love it too, but I have to say the lace ones are my favorite.  I just have to make one for myself.

I did this one a couple of weeks ago.  I wish I would have had it listed before Halloween.. oh well.
I kind of want to do a black in black version

Love them, esp the first and second - did you do something to keep them from curling, or do they keep their shapes themselves?

All of them are so pretty! I really love the top one, and the last one is fascinating - so many colors/textures/shapes to look at!

they keep their shape pretty well by themselves, but a couple of them I have blocked just because the picot stitching didn't want to behave.

that first one is a favorite of mine as well... I was fiddling around one day and decided that I loved the design (can you tell?) 
but that top pictured necklace - I love how it turned out looking all antique and sort of Victorian but subtle

Ooh, they're all gorgeous but the first and the last are absolutely stunning!  Did you make up the patterns yourself?

They're all so pretty, although I do especially like the flower one.

I did just make them up as I went until I was happy with a design.  I have yet to write up a pattern.  I guess I should get started on that
