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"!

Purple Convertible

Necklace, that is, not a car! 

It converts from a long necklace to a choker and bracelet and the pendant is detachable so it can be worn several different ways.

I've seen this done but this is the first time I've ever done it.  It actually came about by accident.  When the original necklace was finished it was just a little shorter than I intended.  I actually like these necklaces in a shorter length, but I think most people prefer them longer.  I had extra beads so I decided to add the "bracelet", which can be attached to the necklace with toggle clasps, adding length.  The shell pendant is really pretty large.  Since some of us might not be comfortable with such a large pendant I attached a spring ring clasp to it so it can be worn with or without it. 

Hope you're having a great week!

Our days would be happier if we gave people a piece of our heart rather than a piece of our mind.
