Mix & Match: Golden Meadow Necklace

The purging and clearing of heavily burdened boxes spilling out my crochet treasures continues in the new year and the end is nowhere to be seen!
I am literally out of my wits, wondering what to do with this alpinic proportions of said treasures and I know I should be thanking the heavens more for having a husband that effortlessly deals with these yarn and textile outbursts!
The first handling was rather successful (I think) for I have used several tubes for this necklace and a handful of flowers. I actually didn't snap any before pictures because I was competing with the daylight and it won :P.
I slid three different size tubes onto the main one and sewed the flowers in the arrangement that you see and that I liked most.
The pattern for the tubes is here and the one for the gerberas is here. The others are product of my whims - as always.
We also have kits for the tubes and you might want to check out those too.

Beautiful way to use treasured crochet items! My husband has banned me from buying more, and whilst I complied last year I think I might sneak some more things in this year :)

Thank you Helen! I try to declutter crochet pieces by joining them into a bigger project like this necklaces. My "always to go" second option is to make brooches. That one never fails too :)
I consider myself a lucky lady. Whenever we pass the yarn store he even tempts me by saying: "Don't you want to see what new things they've brought?" But he knows that most of the time I control myself, so he doesn't feel threatened. :)

Fabulous pendant, Maya!!!!!!! Oh, I love crochet pendants. And this one has BEAUTIFUL colours. Hugs, my friend.

I would love to take a peek inside those heavily burdened boxes filled with crochet pretties, Maya. Your Golden Meadows necklace is lovely. The orange and yellow flowers are a sight to behold. The artful arrangement of both the tubing and the flowers looks wonderful. An understanding husband is a most excellent thing. =)
