I crocheted this choker with 24 gague copper wire and glass faceted beads.
I call it falling leaves because I wanted something autumnal.  I just can't wait for the cooler weather, and I love fall!  This really puts me in an autumn state of mind when I wear it.


I was inspired by a pattern like it in Melissa Leapman's Cool Crochet book.

And I don't look good in leggings.

Lurkers and commentors welcome.
Lots of crocheting and sewing and knitting!  Pretty much my life for your consumption.

I never thought of crocheting wire for some reason. What a great idea. And I love your choker!

It's very pretty.  I love those colors.

That is gorgeous! I love fall!!!!!
You should crochet some earrings to match too : )
Is that just like a crochet chain?
The colors are so pretty together - copper was definitely the right choice.

That is so gorgeous!  It really does look like autumn leaves.  Wink  It would look awesome with a simple black dress in the fall.

Always look on the bright side of life... *whistles*
