I made this necklace for a friend of mine. It's the first thing I've made and sold Grin Grin Grin
It's on pg. 54 of the new Interweave Crochet magazine. I used handspun bamboo yarn that I dyed with Procion MX dye. It's more red than I wanted, but Mae (my friend) loves it so YEA!!

Oh, it's GEORGEOUS!!  I love the color- it's so striking!

My favorite thing about crocheted jewelry is that it looks heavy and complex, but it's so light and comfy you forget you're wearing it.

Thanks everybody! I really enjoyed watching this one come together. It was so much easier and faster than I expected. I did some customizing on the neckband. When I crocheted it to the perscribed length, it was 18 inches long...way too long for a choker!! So I cut it down to about 14 inches and it worked out great. I'm really glad you all liked it!

The more I come back to this, the more jealous I get.

How hard would you say this project was?  I'm experienced with crocheting straight and in circles, and I know a few pattern stitches.  I've never crocheted with anything lighter than a sport weight.  Do you think I could tackle it?

The mag said that it was intermediate. I really didn't have a whole lot of problems with it. And since all the "flowers" are crocheted seperately, it you don't like how one turned out, you can always just try it again. And to be honest, it was not as hard as I thought that it would be.
