Gallery – Crochet

My Nan originally taught me the basic crochet stitches, and after becoming hooked I invested in several books on the subject and enjoyed making up scarves and blankets in wool. My tutor at college used coloured wire to make simple crochet earrings, and I was inspired. While there are a lot of sources for crochet jewellery made from wool or cotton, there seemed to be very little for jewellery made from wire, and a lot of the published patterns seemed to be very simple or the focus is as another method of beading. As crochet was originally developed as a way of making cheap lace type fabrics, it seemed strange to me that more people were not exploring these kinds of stitches as a way of making jewellery from wire. I started experimenting and these are some of the results.

Rapunzel Tiara – enamelled copper wire miniature tiara with swarovski crystal detail. The Tiara base is flexible and has two loops at the end so it can be twisted around a ponytail or held on with kirbi grips. Tiara measures 5-7cm across at the base and 3.5cm high, weighing approximately 9.5g.
