Colorful Oya Necklace

 

 
 
 
Our latest bohemian collection will be enriched with some oya necklaces. Oya crochet has been on my mind for a while now, and finally it is being realized.
 
The frame of the necklace is made from ecru thread, while the little flowers are from DMC embroidery thread. I didn't use traditional oya (sewing needle) technique to make these - instead a regular crochet hook was used.
 
There are 10 necklaces ready which are planned for a photo shoot later this month. We have already settled for a location which we think is the perfect fit for these.

Maya, you are amazing! Don't know how you manage (with job and household and all) to create so many wonderfully beautiful and cheerful jewelry. You're a bubbling spring of brilliant ideas! Just keep on bubbling - cannot wait to see what you've come up with next!
Have a creative weekend,

Maya they are really beautiful. I have a question for you. My mom taught me a few things when I was a little girl and they looked like these here. However she used this ivory colored instrument. It was the length of a pinky finger and it looked like a green bean shape sort of.the two sides were held together in the middle by a round piece. Am I making any sense at all. I remember her making lace like crochet that looked exactly like your necklace.

Oh Mary I think I know what you are talking about but cannot put the name to it. I don't use that tool, just an ordinary hook. I am also transfixed by the crochet technique people use to make lace using spools. I think they are called spools. Maybe someone reading this will help us with the name and /or the technique you described.
