Flower necklace

by VM Brasseur on March 16th, 2006

Much procrastinating later I’ve finally finished my next “trial” piece of wire crochet. As with all of the others, this one takes the form of a necklace.

Wire Crochet flower necklaceI wanted to see what kinds of forms I could make with the wire. Flipping through a pattern book I found a flower motif which was simple enough that the shape would not be lost in the twisting of the wire. I made a plain one which worked out well, then I decided to snazz it up a bit with some beads I had lying around. Now what to do with it? Well, make another of course. And then? Join them together. Lather, rinse, repeat. It’s been an on-again/off-again project since some time in January, I believe. I haven’t felt like crocheting as much lately, which explains the delay.

Materials used:

  • 28 gauge silver-toned tarnish resistent craft wire from Bead Smith
  • ‘Perles de Verre’ seed beads from Blue Moon
  • Toggle clasp
  • Size 1 steel crochet hook

The beads, though they were supposed to be within the middle of each stitch, in reality ended up floating to wherever they wished. At first this bugged me, then I ended up liking the randomness. Between that and the twisting of the wire it was, once again, a lot like organized chaos. You can’t really tell from the pics (photography is not my forte), but the beads are various dark pearlescent shades of blue, teal, green and violet. Honest, they look good against the wire.

This is another piece for which I have no real purpose. I may wear it soon, but if anyone would like to have it after that they are welcome to it. I already have another project in mind and—should I actually get around to designing and completing it—I already have a recipient in mind.

    ooh – pretty!
    reading your blog makes me feel very unproductive – although I’ve been considering starting my own blog so people can see that I actually am making progress on my house (I AM! it’s just slow, I swear.)

  2. I wore it today for “iPost school pictures” day (we had photographers in for headshots). At first they thought the necklace was a tattoo. Wrong, but a pretty neat idea.

  3. The necklace may have found a home. Two coworkers told me they liked it, so I offered it up. One of them took it home to show his wife. If she approves, it’s all hers with my heartfelt blessing.

  4. She liked it. Hey Mikey.
