I'm calling this my "Crocheted Cherries" necklace. As some of you may or may not know I've been "moonlighting" at a couple of the local Michaels stores as a Bead Corner Academy Instructor. Michaels is now offering fundamental beading technique classes in their stores. One of the newest classes is a necklace crocheted with wire. I tried a couple of designs at home this past weekend and this was my second attempt. The first one I did with pink wire, pink Swarovski crystals, and various pink Czech pressed glass flowers. I like it, too, but you know me and cherries.
This view is a little closer up so you can see the details. This version of the "Crocheted Cherries" is 18 inches in length and is finished off with a black toned toggle clasp making it easy to put on and take off. I'm offering it for sale in my Etsy.com shop here. Thanks so much for stopping by to see my Red for Rednesday.
