Trying My Hand At Crocheting Jewelry

Crocheted Hoop Necklace with Beads

I love to crochet and last year ventured into crocheting bracelets. As with most artists I wanted to try something new VIOLA I tried my hand at crocheted earrings and necklaces. (Personally I am a jewelry hoarder especially earrings and rings).
Here are the pictures from my first crocheted earrings and a necklace

Crocheted Hoop Earrings
I first used a plastic hoop. The yarn is cotton then added sock yarn which is thinner.The yarn I used is super soft by sturdy. Comes out smooth. I used one type to crochet around the hoop and another cotton type for the embellishment. The embellishment is the PICOT stitch. I made a Picot Crochet Stitch video
I love the variegated colors which means no 2 pairs of earrings would be alike. If your a person who is matchy-matchy in your fashion that may not sit well with you. The colors as you crochet with them come out as either red,purple,green,blue or yellow. So in this instance it is once red and one purple earring. I am also a “bead lover” so add to add beading. I tried something even newer for me. I used gold jewel wire to add the beads to the tips of the PICOT stitch.

Does anyone enjoy making crochet jewelry?

Until the next time keep the Faith and Plenty of Yarn
