A torture


Only 6 rows, but a torture to make : 
superfine crochet ... took me about 12 hours to make this necklace,
pricked my fingers too often they are sore now,
even  slipped with the crochetneedle under my fingernails ... autch !

But I love the result !
It is such a delicate little necklace that really uplifts a beautiful neck.

I was thinking this morning, about this same-style necklace you made for the "Hills and Lakes" challenge!!!

I really like how these colours are put together :)

So pretty! I can imagine that it was hard work to make - I struggle with very fine crochet.

Wat een mooi resultaat heb je bereikt. Wel jammer dat het pijnlijk was om te maken. Ik heb ook van die dunne haaknaalden en ik zal onthouden dat hij onder mijn nagel kan schieten....:(
