Ethnic Bridal Necklaces



As I have previously mentioned here - I have embarked on a journey with fellow crocheters and specifically for the project I decided to crochet something that would represent my country and its history. 

Macedonian richly decorated ethnic bridal costumes inspired me to make these enchanting necklaces. The rich palette of used colors symbolize life, love, unity, fertility and longevity. 




My interview is scheduled for the 14th November and I am so excited about it. 

The pattern is for sale on etsy, ravelry and craftsy
