Do you remember the crocheted necklace with the roses? The one from this post? Well, it didn't look bad, but making it was a nightmare. I'd never make it again... but I knew that someone really liked it and wanted to have one for herself. It was hard to force myself to work with this pattern, I admit, but once I realized that I had only a few days left (it had to be done by August 17th - that's today!), I started working like crazy to make sure it would be finished on time. Still don't know how it has happened... but the necklace was completed within just three days. Yayyyy!! ;)
So, this is the necklace again... this time the roses aren't on a white background, but light beige instead. It is made entirely with Toho seed beads size 11.
I wanted the necklace to have an adjustable length, but adding a chain for that purpose didn't sound like a good idea to me. Not for such a thick rope at least. Below you can see how it has been solved. :)
This is the shortest version:
This one is slightly longer:
And this one a little bit longer than slightly longer ;)
And finally, the longest version.
During the last few days I have made two more gifts. One of them is another beaded crochet rope, simple but elegant for Julia, along with a matching bracelet.
The second gift is a small, simple pendant for Helene. She probably doesn't expect any gift, so hopefully it will be a nice surprise for her. :)
And in just a few hours all the gifts will be in a plane flying to Sweden...
I will stay with you though, because soon I'll have more beadwork to show. :)
Good night! :)
