The Prettiest Little Crochet Flower Necklace!

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Isn't this the most adorable thing?! Last night I saw this necklace on etsy and FELL IN LOVE! Instead of paying $26 for one, I thought I'd try to make my own. And I do think it turned out quite lovely! I LOVE it! It's my new favorite necklace :)

I just used cotton crochet thread and my little tiny silver hook {US3/ 2.1MM}. I crocheted it like I was crocheting a big flower with the scallops. Formed it into a spiral and made several stitches running through the bottom to hold it together. I sewed a glass pearl bead in the middle, clipped a little "O" ring (sorry, don't know the name of them!) onto one of the petals, and strung it on a necklace chain. 

EASY and ADORABLE! (if you crochet, I guess!) 

I'm really loving it, can you tell?? 

My new pretty flower makes me happy :) 

AND... I just got a job yesterday and today was my first day of training! 
This makes me happy today too! I'm WAITRESSING!!
Pray for me, pleeease! I get freakishly nervous about new things!.. especially since I've never had cash register experience.. those machines scare me.. okay, so it's more like the people I'm afraid of.. afraid if I do something wrong they're going to yell at me and then I'll cry.. ya.. will you pray for me? K thanks :)
