Muscat I

Another long-term-project is finished.

Two years ago my husband bought me this beautiful labradorite in Muscat. It needs a suitable frame, which it got with this crochet necklace.

Good things come to those who wait

or they get a lariat.
In the Beadwork-Magazine August/September 2010 was the Aurora-Lariat by Scarlett Lanson.
I fell directly in love with the spheres at the ends but I do not like the remaining part.
For a long time I crept around this tutorial but finally I made one of these spheres and I was excited.

It took only another year to finish the second sphere and the crochet rope, which is 110 cm long.

Pincushion "Basket"

Last summer I tidied up a bit my stash and found these wooden bells, we used some years ago to make pincushions. They got a place near to a bag of Halftilas and this idea was born:

To leave the legal limbo you get something new. This pattern is printed. You find it in my etsy-shop.

Easy to bead and very dramatic.

One of my British friends is a volunteer in the British Legion. She was asked, if it is possible to use the symbol in a piece of jewellery.  
Here is my necklace:

Although I did not post for a long time, I am not inactive. I am preparing the new school-year.
Then I try something new. Here is a photograph to give you an idea.
This mouse is crocheted. It did not want to be on a picture, so the photograph is not really nice.

I found this pattern on Pinterest.

The necklace is made with seed beads 15° and 15 beads per round.
