Crocheting

About a year ago I followed a few workshops with Veerle from www.nevousinstallezpas.be at the MIAT (Museum Industrial Archeology) in Gent. She is a real crochetqueen to me and makes very very very beautifull things.  She introduced us in the world of a crochet needle (a very thin one) and very thin tread to make jewelry.  I immediately fel for this technique.
I started to crochet jewelry and here are some pictures of the things I made last year.

I still had one necklace that was waiting to get to finished.  Finally after about 10 months I did; and this is the result.  I combined it with a piece of selfmade Bronze and crochet hoops.

These are very, very fine work! I wonder if you need special glasses to crochet such skinny threads?

Very lovely work, as always!

This is beautiful, perfect and I love the colours you've used.
Do you find crochet like this takes for ever? I'm still quite slow.
