Many, many moons ago I won an amazing giveaway on Mia's blog and as a token of my appreciation for it, in return I created a necklace and a bracelet for her. Not a set, obviously.
I didn't and still don't know anything about Mia's style - one can think one knows somebody by visiting their online journal, but in fact my assumptions were wrong when it came to her favourite colors. Her favourite colors are the ones that I
never rarely use in my crochet palette so as I sent the package away, I was still worrying whether these would appeal to her.
So not knowing about her style, I made her a romantic necklace, with just small dashes of pearl beads. Then thought that if she is not the type to wear that necklace, I might venture out by making a boho bracelet where I would splash beads all over it to my heart's content.
Her response (yes, she already got them) was fantastic and I really hope she enjoys wearing them. If not, I guess, she can always give them away as gifts....
If you haven't visited her blog, be sure to. She makes amazing cards and I am sure you are going to enjoy them!
