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"!

The Only Thing I Like About Fall Is The Colors.

Well, that's not exactly true, I guess.  Fall is very pretty and the temperature is a nice break from the heat of summer.  BUT...fall leads into winter.  Which I hate.  How can the summer go so fast and the winter drag on forever?   But fall is upon us.  It's being mentioned everywhere.  The kids are going back to school and it will be September soon.  

So... now that I've whined about it, I'll show you a new necklace with the beautiful colors of fall in mind! 

This one is made with autumn jasper chips and sparkly 8mm goldstone beads on vintaj bronze wire.    The sparkle of the goldstone doesn't show up in the picture but this is a description of it:  "Thousands of shiny flecks in a medium brown stone, invented by accident in the 19th century.  This manmade glass shimmers with every move."  So pretty!

wow lady! how long did this take to make with all those stones? Love the gold stone....they caught my eye right off with their smooth roundness.

Jana, that's beautiful! I too love the fall colors... but I would be more than happy to skip winter and head straight into spring - late spring if I can choose. This is a gorgeous necklace as are all of your crocheted creations.
