Last week I had been in the mood to make a piece of jewelry. I remembered that a while ago I had seen a bead necklace that was crocheted using wire. That was something I wanted to try and looked for a tutorial. I found one by Karla Kam on YouTube, watched it and started right away. Fortunately I had everything, that was needed, on hand: A large size crochet hook, thin wire, large beads and a clasp.
This is my finished necklace
This had been a fast and fun project. I think it didn't take me much longer than about half an hour, so this could be a great last minute gift idea. Please click HERE if you like to see the tutorial.
I have to share two more wins from the One World One Heart event that had arrived. The first one is LiLi's beautiful altered book. It was filled with sweet little surprises like tags and German scraps:
I've made a collage to show you some of the pretty inside details as well
Thank you so much, LiLi! I just love it!
The second gift that had come in was from Cat over at Gypsy Nurse. I was lucky to win one of her lovely gypsy bags. She chose to send me this one and I'm very happy with it. Thank you so much, Cat!
It finally seems to become spring over here. The sun came out and the first flowers showed up. It's not freezing anymore and it feels so good to leave the house without wearing gloves and a muffler. Spring is my favorite season and after this long winter I'm even more happy to welcome it.
Have a great and sunny weekend!
