New jewelry and crochet

Happy New Year everyone!

I was so busy crafting that I forgot to post lately. I’m sorry for this. Let’s start with my new bracelets and necklaces. Some are listed on etsy or alittlemarket, some, not yet. I didn’t have time.

I hate when they try to translate your website and/or make “improvements” to help you. Grrrrrr. I hate when I want to post and things look different. This is an amethyst necklace with crystals and fimo beads, gemstones and chips. The second one is a Y-necklace, still amethyst:

this one is already listed in my etsy shop.

And some nice bracelets I made

all made in the last two weeks.

About crochet now. I made a cute circular bolero with long sleeves in shades of grey, purple, pink and white:

this one is listed on my etsy shop. It seems that I can’t link anymore, or I don’t know where because they try to translate in Romanian (just trying, the result is a full bullshit). So, next time maybe I will post in my brand new website… I don’t have a pattern for this bolero. I will make another one to see how it works.

Crochet & beading

Some new jewelry in my shop and a new halter top in some baby yarn.

Let’s start with the jewelry.

I exercised herringbone stitch with different size beads, and the result is this bracelet:

herringbone stitch #bracelet

The main color beads have some metallic irisations, but they are glass beads.

a little bit too much photoshop here I’m afraid.

And an ocean theme freeform bracelet with some pink quartz chips and sea shells:

and triple spiral necklace:

Open work crochet Top & Cardigan

I didn’t post too much lately, but I’ve been busy finishing some projects:)

First a new #cardigan / #jacket in shades of #blue:

with a link to my etsy shop

cardigan

and the back:

I used wool (bleu) and acrylic (bleumarine) yarn and a 6.5 mm (K) hook.

Made on length, on 92 stitches (it’s pretty long), double crochet and 2 rows of cross stitch. The cowl is double V stitch: 2dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the same st. It’s a 12 cm wide band around, and for the sleeves too.

And this is the top, in spring and summer colors:

with link to my etsy shop;)

Now back to work;)

Have a nice spring everyone!

Happy feet slippers and some new jewelry

I made a pair of slippers for myself this time.

I made 2 soles joined together: one in hemp rope and one it’s wool:IMG_20150106_195336 IMG_20150107_010830 IMG_20150107_081642 IMG_20150106_195311

I used a 6.5 mm hook (M) and worst weight wool.

As you can see the sole has only two rounds: for the smallest size I chained 22 and worked around in dc (to turn work as a circkle: 2 dc in each st). For different sizes add 3 sts for each size. These are 22.5 cm for 23,5 add 3 sts, for 23 add 2, for 24 add 4…

Join together those 2 soles and work 2 rounds of sc.

The stitch I used is Catherine wheel adapted: instead of ch 5 I chained 2 at the second round ( the blue navy one).

In the front part: ch 4 (or 6 for bigger sizes) cluster: *dc in first group of color B, tr in next group, double treble in each next 2 groups, tr in next group, dc in next group*, ch 4 (or 6) and sc in the opposite side.

Now about my jewelry:

Crocheted necklaces #2

Do you remember my finds for holidays? If not, try here https://cristinamycrochet.wordpress.com/2013/12/21/some-inspiration-for-holydays/

Why do I ask?? Because finally I tried one of those necklaces. And it works pretty good. I made it in black and sparkling grey with some magatma beads. I used cotton for embroidery and metallic thread (it’s not really metallic, it’s just sparkling grey with some black) and a 1.75 mm steel hook.

Let me to introduce you my latest creation;))
