Last week I got a crochet book out of the library and in it it had spiral crochet. I was keen to give it a go and after a quick go with thread I set out to have a go with wire. The results are here:
I asked you for feedback and I had plenty, thank you to you all for taking the time. It was very interesting as they were quite varied – it seems that we do all have truly different tastes and opinions which is good to reaffirm.
The earings above were made with 0.2mm purple wire with a border in gold 0.2mm wire. The necklace was much chunkier with the green wire being 0.40mm. The purple border was thinner at 3.15mm.
This week I had a go at doing some more, but this time I added beads:
The earings are made from 0.2mm wire and seed beads whilst the necklace wire is 3.15mm and the beads are consequently a bit larger. The main difference between the two ‘sets’ is that the beads were incorporated into the top of each of the trebles rather than adding a border later. Although I like the green necklace as it is unusual I do think that the thinner wire works well. Unfortunately I did not really have enough of the green beads to make the Beaded Necklace any longer. If I had I think the effect would have been better, although this way I have spread it out into a coil shape which adds another dimension.
PROJECTS IN PROGRESS
I really feel that these are ‘Projects in Progress’ and I shall return to these in the non-to-distant future. I would have done it sooner except that I have some other ideas that I wish to do from the library book I have on loan and obviously have a time limit on these as the book has to go back soonish. To add to my creativity a friend has also leant me some books which have got even more ideas buzzing around in my head! Once I get an idea I cannot wait to have a go. 🙂
As always I would love to hear you opinions – good or constructive as they are really useful in the development of my work. Hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for reading. 🙂
