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"!

A "Winning" Combination


In earlier posts I told about winning a couple of blog giveaways.  This is a combination of beads that I won.   The larger beads are 8mm Fire Polish beads in "Crystal and Rose Porphyr" that I received from Jewelry by Jessica.  (Porphyr beads have "swirled" colors.) The seed beads are some of the seed beads that I received from JustATishThey're a perfect match!  Thanks again, girls!

The center section is crocheted and I made a matching spool knitted "chain" to connect to each side.  I originally planned on attaching regular chain but nothing I had looked right so I decided to add the spool knitted pieces.

I like to give them names so I'm going to call this one "Audrey".  It's such a soft romantic piece and that name just seems to fit to me.

They are a perfect match! And you made such a beautiful necklace out of them!

Don't you just love Tish and Jessica? They're awesome.

this is dreamy! i love the simple but complexity of your designs. two simple beads combined on a crocheted chain and elegance is born. so much texture. my eyes keep crawling all over it. perfect for this ADHD girl :)

What a pretty necklace...delicate but has a great presence!

I particularly like how you crocheted the center and knit the rest...uniquely one of a kind!

My goodness, Jana, I love it! I'd love to see more in this design with the colorful crochet portion in the front and more of a chain going around the back - I think it's a winner!
