Minimalistic removable and sophisticated





Those are the words for this choker: the pendant can be removed, so the black choker can be worn seperatly.

Tassel thread


 

On my trip to the Provence I found a bobin of tassel thread in shades of raspberry.  I wanted to make a necklace entirely crocheted with this yarn.  The bobin was composed of 4 threads, so I made the base with a 2.50 crochetneedle and added extra color to the edges by crocheting them with Gütermann sewingyarn in matching colors.  Can be worn single = long, 
or double = short. 
It took me about 16 hours to finish it!
On sale in my shop.

Review and surprise

Reading this nice review about my crochetwork made me smile:

love it. Simple, natural materials but when i wear it, the feeling is as i wear a precious golden necklace. Very nice work. Thanks. 


A few days later I received a package in my mailbox and was surprised to find an illustration made by the lady that wrote the nice review.
