Another new technique

After seeing a lariat in BEAD magazine made of crochet - I decided to give it a go, although I didn't have the right type of thread so used embroidery thread instead! Here's how it came out.....

I ended up with one longer piece and a short piece, so I am not quite sure what to do with them next! However I have ordered some cotton thread now so when that arrives, I can give it a proper go.

Here's something else I made this weekend - a black line jasper necklace, bracelet & earrings for a friend to give as a gift. I've not used this shape of bead before and I quite like it as it's so chunky.

Wow, the crotchet stuff looks very delicate.
I love the black jasper set.
Chunky beads are in!

I like crocheted jewellary, I've seen quite a bit of it recently and it does look so delicate and clever.
