Shells and accessories

Well, as it usually happens with great things, our holiday ended and we are left with many beautiful memories and a ton of pictures to remind us of it.  

While on holiday I made a lot of pieces for the shop, several for ourselves and for gifts, so I feel fulfilled. I thoroughly enjoy crocheting while on holiday during those several hours when the sun is scorching hot and I am in a deep shadow with a cup of tea or coffee, surrounded with colorful yarn. Crochet addicts completely understand me :) 

The above shell pattern is adorable and versatile in the sense that it can be used for any type of jewelry you want. I made a headband (not shown), a skinny scarf and a necklace, but it can also be used to make bracelets  / belts and it would be just the right thing to add to a simple t-shirt as a decorative edging.

I made a photo tutorial for this which will soon be available.
Until then, enjoy the end of July.
