Welcome to my blog! When I started this blog it was all about wire crochet jewelry. I fell in love with the first piece I saw and I had to learn how. I was "hooked"!

"Cerise" Necklace

This necklace is crocheted on gold wire using a mix of beads in chartreuse, gold, and antique gold. There are different sizes of gold and green seed beads plus bugle beads in each color. I added a round filigree pendant and a "fringy" dangle. I really like this one, but of course, this shade of green is one of my favorites. The bugle beads and little gold lined beads really sparkle. I don't do too much in gold even though I prefer it because silver seems to be more popular, especially with the younger crowd.

"Rachelle" Necklace

This is kind of a fun one! I've had the shell pendant for quite awhile and have been waiting to find beads to go with it. I finally found these frosted purple beads with an "ab" finish that have both the purple and blue color.

This is another one of the Celestial Crystal donuts in "Vitrail". I also used Vitrail 8mm firepolished beads as accents. I am in love with this pendant! It just glows, shimmers, and changes colors as you move.

"Daisy Bell"

Does anyone remember the song "Daisy Bell"? Part of it goes like this:
Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do
I'm half crazy all for the love of you
It won't be a stylish marriage
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two.
That's what this necklace makes me think of. I used 6/0 seed beads and cute glass beads in the shape of daisies and circles.

"Deja" Necklace

"Deja" is made with Celestial Crystal in Pink AB. AB is a finish, "Aurora Borealis", which adds a prismatic effect to the beads. I've never used Celestial Crystal before but when I saw the new "donuts" I decided to give it a try. It's really pretty & sparkly. I love the donut pendant! I ordered these in a few different colors so expect to see more soon!
