Set 3: Spring Fever 2007 Jewelry Collection

Beaded Crochet Earrings and Necklace in Pink.

This original design in beaded crochet, was made with Omega Brand Nylon Crochet Thread #2. I used transparent pink glass ovals, and tear drops. Size 11, 8, & 6 seed beads play the supporting role.

In my previous post "36 Hours to a New Design", I posted a photo of these earrings. They are now finished, and I did put the dangles on (as you can see). Here is another view. They hang just over 2 1/2 inches from the ear wires. Ear wires are silver-plated over surgical steel.




Here is the necklace the earrings have been waiting for. I think it looks rather romantic, don't you think so, too? It is 17 1/4 inches long, so hangs loosely around the neck.



Another view, slightly different angle includes the silver-plated toggle clasp. (Hint: you can click on the photos to get a larger view.)



Tomorrow will find this set listed in my Etsy Shop: KnotGypsy Designs. As always, I invite comments. Thank you for looking.
