21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Crochet Wire Necklace & Bracelet on: June 06, 2007 05:41:29 PM
I've been wanting to try this for a while.  I used gold 28 gauge wire, a size 1.75 mm. crochet hook and some glass chips in 2 shades of green.  Simply chain 4 strands for each and then weave them together.  I finished them off with toggle clasps. I think if I made it again, I'd only use 3 strands for the necklace. I'm not much of a crocheter - chain st. is really the only crocheting I can do.  For more detailed pics see my blog:  http://everythingshunkydory.blogspot.com/2007/03/crocheted-wire-necklace-and-bracelet.html

I'd like to make some type of jewelry with it.  I've heard that if you grind the edges to smooth them the dust from that is very toxic.  Does anyone know if it's easy to drill a hole in the shell without cracking it?  I don't want to ruin the shells through trial and error so that's why I'm asking other craftsters.

A friend brought some gorgeous Paua Shell back from New Zealand.  I'm not sure if the pink-peachy shell is paua as well.  Now the question - What to do with it?  I'd like to do something really nice with it.
These photos don't really do it justice.  For better photos click here:  http://everythingshunkydory.blogspot.com/2007/06/paua-shell.html

olive_juice, I came here by way of your jewelry post.  Love the monopoly jewelry and the dress is great!  You have the cutest little sewing table.  I wonder if there's a thread somewhere on craftster where people post photos of their sewing or craft areas.  You get to know a lot about a person when you see what their craft area looks like.
mezofoprezo, thank you for your heartwarming hair story - very cute!

heavenlyevil, I live in Waterloo but had never heard of Wellington Fibres before you mentioned it.  Do you know of any other interesting yarn suppliers?  I've been to the Spinrite Factory Outlet in Listowel, but other than Len's Mill Store and Cloth and Clay, I don't know of any other great places to buy yarn in this area.

trinabrielle, it's gorgeous.  I never would have thought that a shawl would look so great knit up in Homespun yarn.  The colour is stunning.  Thanks for the hint about knotting the ends of the fringe.  I've got a 50% off coupon for Michaels so I guess I know what I'm getting with that this week.

I've used 6 balls of SWS now and haven't found a break/knot in any of them.  I thought you only found flaws like that in seconds.  When I started a new ball, I joined it using the "wet and splice" method to avoid any knots in the scarf.  That way there aren't any ends to weave in either.

Better late than never, I guess.  Today's the first day of Spring and I just finished my Danica in SWS in Natural Earth.  I bought more in Natural Pink and this time I'm going to add pom poms like lasandri showed us when she made her winnie cooper.

When we were on vacation in Holguin, one of the guards made these for us out of palm fronds.  He tried to teach me how, but I was under the influence of the tasty margarita, so sadly I didn't pick up the method.

You did a beautiful job.  I love the button you chose!
