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"!

"Simplicity" Wire Crochet Necklace

This necklace is sparkling "Simplicity".  I can just visualize this on a bride, with the bridesmaids wearing the same design in the wedding color! 

These beads are from Artbeads beautiful selection of Swarovski crystal.  It's a single strand crocheted on non-tarnish silver color wire with a 4mm Crystal Silver Shade Swarovski crystal  in each stitch.  A Swarovski Galactic Pendant in Crystal Silver Shade is attached with a silver bail.  The matching earrings are simple long dangles.

"Chelsea" Wire Crochet Necklace & Giveaway Winner

First, Congratulations to Amanda.  Your name was drawn for the bracelet giveaway!

This is a different style using the Autumn Jasper chips
and bronze wire.  When I added the bead cap to the bead
on the pendant I thought it looked like a little acorn!

I wish you could see the beautiful color and sparkle of these beads!

"Kyra" Autumn Jasper Wire Crochet Necklace

I wish it was April instead of October, but I do love the colors of fall!  Autumn Jasper is so pretty.

This is a nice chunky necklace.  It's heavily beaded with Autumn Jasper chips crocheted on bronze wire and loosely braided.  The large oval pendant is adorned with a little accent made from a Vintaj brass piece.

This one is different than any I've made before.  The "centerpiece" is three strands. It's attached on each side to a single crocheted chain with large copper jumprings.  It's all done on dark copper wire.  I'm really not sure what these beads are but I think they're glass chips.  The picture really doesn't show the beautiful color of these.  They have a little bit of a shine to them and look like a yard full of fall leaves!
