Jewelry on My Mind

I've been making a lot of knitted and crocheted jewelry lately. It's great to work on something small and cotton in the warm weather.

It's also great to wear my fiber jewelry when it's warm. The cotton is absorbent and doesn't get sticky the way beads and metal do in the heat. Moreover, you can wear something big and bold without the weight of stone and metal jewelry.

I've been getting a very positive response from customers who've been clamoring for special orders. Here are a few of my new pieces.

White Crocheted Lace Choker (Perfect for Brides)

Under the Sea Neckpiece

Black Choker with Ribbon Tassel

Daffodil Choker

Marigold Mania Lariat Necklace

All of these and more can be seen in my Etsy Store

I really do love to do custom work on these, so please contact me if you have any ideas you'd like to see made into one of a kind jewelry.

I am very impressed with your designs. They are not "crafty" looking but very sculptural.

I am trying to learn to crochet and would like to do what you are doing at some point, any advise?

Thank you Sharon.

My only advice would be to keep crocheting which will build up your skills. Look into some of the wonderful crochet books now on the market to learn new techniques. But most of all, experiment. Do what looks good to you. If you don't like it, rip it out and start again. Have Fun!
