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"!

"Nomad" Black & Silver Spool Knitted Necklace

When I saw this pendant from Blue Moon Beads' Global Nomad collection I immediately thought how perfect it would look on a spool knitted necklace.  I used silver wire, adding an opaque black 6/0 seed bead into each stitch, slid the pendant on and finished it with silver end cones and a lobster clasp.   

I do two craft shows each year.  The first one this year is next Saturday, the 20th, at the "Pecanfest" in Chetopa, KS.   If you're from our area, come check it out!  There will lots of fun things going on.  I'm looking forward to some homemade fudge from the "fudge lady"!  She has so many kinds to choose from but I always get Cherry Mash cause it's my favorite!

I love the Nomad collection but I must confess I haven't seen this pendant before. It's stunning as is your knitted necklace. Each compliments the other beautifully.

The necklace is so gorgeous!!! I have the Royal Boheme instruction booklet from Blue Moon Beads and fell in love with all of their global nomad pendants! While searching for their global nomad pendants on the net, I stumbled upon your website! Fabulous work!!! The beauty of the pendant has been enhanced by the black bead spool knit necklace... I've to say that I love this necklace more than the pendant now :)
