I had some vouchers for the local craft shop for my birthday so I decided to treat myself to this book. My first craft-y love has always been making pendants and I've wanted for a while to learn more skills. I'm really enjoying this book-I think it's not amazing in how it explains the techniques but I quite like improvising and the ideas in the book are beautiful :-) So here are some of my first attempts...
The one on the left is crocheted with a fine gauge beading wire with little black beads-
Once I got the knack of trying to crochet with wire, this was a lot of fun to make!
The other bracelet is a handmade chain with some charm ideas-it'll probably never be worn as it's just for practice-
Lastly, I was asked recently to make a Fluorite Pendant for a friend so I used some of the ideas in the book for inspiration-
Sadly, my local Pagan shop has closed down so getting crystals is a little tricky now but I may be going to Glastonbury this weekend with some friends so I may find some more then :-)
