Crocheting bangles, tiaras, beads
Being snowed in for the first time in my life gave me a bunch of time to get craft projects done. And it was totally, totally great. All of it, including the weather. I am glad the snow has melted now though. SnowLand is a nice place to visit; but I would not want to live there.
A few months previously I had knocked up a range of amigurumi figures and shapes I loosely refer to as ‘beads’ – fruit, pastry, ice creams, fungi, eyeballs, each under 10cm³ in size. I found some earring-bits while moving and spent the weekend designing some jewellery, adding pom-poms, tassels and other finishing touches.
I made a set of Amanita muscaria earrings with matching necklace.
I also brought out the bracelets, armlets, tiaras and bangles. I have made too much jewellery…not enough bodyparts to wear it all on, not enough space in the studio!
Watermelon earrings up close.
I still have a lot of amigurumi eyeball ‘beads’ available too. Will probably make a necklace out of these, or even a choker. Maybe some red stitching to give the eyeballs a more anatomical look. Love a bit of anatomical crochet…
The devil is in the detail, which is why I spend so much time sewing on wool!
