I was pretty bushed after yesterday's drive so after going out this morning and doing everything I had too, I came back and fiddled!
I have been trying a bit of jewellery making and I adore the effect that knitting and crocheting wire creates. The end results are very delicate. Please excuse the old and wrinkly hand as neither of my daughters where about to use as hand models!! I also use an old card table with a green baize top which has seen better days, but I can use it by the computer where the better light is!
I thought I would have a go at a ring
first you do a few chain and some single crochets,
looks a right mess! Then you do some more
until its long enough to go round your finger
pull prod, squash and pinch until your happy with the shape and then join up to make a ring!
this actually makes a nice thumb ring, but couldn't get a good enough pic. I then decided to add some beads to the next one.
The bracelets I have been making for awhile now, I do like them.
I have been trying out something with this, but I may tell you about that another day!
