Wire Crochet Jewelry



I call this necklace "Nights in the Everglades" Having anchored out in the Everglades at night, in the pitch darkness with just a glitter of light from the stars shinning, this is what this necklace reminds me of . It hangs from clasp to center 10 inches with the center hearts at 10 1/2 inches. Non-tarnish silver colored wire is used for this hematite bead necklace at the neck . Where the wire is crocheted, black colored wire is used. Hematite hearts adorn the neck. The price is $50.00.

"At the beach -Suntan brown" is what I call this piece. In our travels on our boat we have visited many beaches and this is the color of skin that I find most attractive. The length of this necklace is 10 -11 inches from clasp to center front. Non-tarnish silver colored wire is used for this glass brown bead necklace at the neck . Where the wire is crocheted, brown colored wire is used. The price is $50.00.












"Flowers and Butterflies" is the name of this piece. The magenta is such a wonderful color to work with. The second strand starts at 6 inches from the clasp, and the two strands lay10 1/2 to 11 1/2 inches at center from clasp. This necklace is made of glass beads with non-tarnish magenta colored wire. This sells for $45.00. This is the only necklace that I have done that has no crochet on it. I found that I do enjoy wire working.

I love the glitter of this necklace - "Catch the Sun" was just perfect to name it. Standing in the sun it catches all the shine and glitter the sun can give. It measures 12 inches from clasp to center. This brown and gold mixed colored necklace is made from seed beads and mother-of-pearl at the neck. The wire is non-tarnish gold colored. The price is $60.00.
















"Elegant Lady" is for those ladies who love shades of pink. 6 large foil lined beads measuring 1 inch each are at the neck - 3 on each side. This necklace measures 12 1/2 inches from clasp to center front. Non-tarnish copper colored wire is used for this glass seed bead necklace in shades of pink color. The price is $60.00.















"Bougainvillea" is what I named this necklace. While in the Florida Keys this flower is everywhere, and the color of this necklace is just the right shade. The strands lay 8 - 9 1/2 inches from the clasp to the center front. Non-tarnish copper colored wire (around the neck) is used for this glass bead necklace in red colors, the crocheted wire is red for the play of beads hanging at the neckline . The price is $50.00.













"Butterfly Dance" These pink butterfly look like they are trying to find flowers to set on. This measures 12 inches from clasp to center. This necklace is made of pink and red glass beads crocheted with non-tarnish gold colored wire. This sells for $40.00.
