Creating sweet gifts - A crochet necklace




Having been caught up in the works and doing last minute gifts for a number of occasions, especially Christmas, I am of the opinion that it is never to early to start making gifts for Christmas. I was hooked when I created this necklace.




All you need is a crochet flower, some beads and a silk ribbon. You thread the ribbon through the beads and the flower and your gift is ready in an hour or two depending on your crochet skills.
There are lots of great crochet flower tutorials around the web, try finding something here, and I also have a tute on how to crochet beads yourself. For the shown necklace I used elliptical wooden beads but the process is the same as shown in the tutorial.


You can add other beads, bows, or maybe do this with fabric flowers, buttons and such. You just let your creativity flow.

Oh my word Maya, this necklace is gorgeous, that flower is sheer elegance and what a clever idea to add the beads, too. You always make it sound so easy, but I know it isn't. Have a lovely Sunday, hugs, Ira

The shade of yarn is absolutely gorgeous and so striking in the photograph against the cream background. This is definitely one of my favourite pieces.
