Saturday night I spent developing a few new patterns. I'm loving these. There are so many things that I can do with these! Crochet necklaces. It sounds strange, but I'm loving how they come out. I've made a few basic ones so far just to get the pattern. I'm using bamboo/silk yarn that has a great drape. I started with acrylic, but it was getting a wonky shape to it. I tried it again with the bamboo/silk and it came out so much better!
This one is a lariat type necklace.
I figure I can add different shapes to the bottom of the chains and also add decoration around the loop that they go thru. Also if each chain was a different color, that would add some dimension to it.
This one is a choker.
It looks pretty plain in the picture, but it looks a lot better in person. For this one, it would have a 2 button closure. I have to find some pretty buttons to go with it. Also, I thought that a flower attached to this to be worn to the side would be a great addition. The flower could also be removable, too, to be worn either way.
This one is a basic necklace.
Each circle is an end. I was having a hard time trying to figure out how to attach it. The lovely people at ArtFire helped though. I think that a hook and eye will work the best. I like the way that it looks with the 2 circles attached, so I wouldn't want a clasp to show. I think a hook and eye would be perfect. I just have to make sure that it's not loose and won't fall off.
I can't wait to make more of these. I love how they came out. I have to make a few embellishments for them and start wearing them around to get opinions!
What do you think? Any ideas on embellishments?
