Doing my thing day.

I had decided to try to learn to crochet with wire. 
I had plenty of crochet hooks and some nice pliable wire from my jewelry making stash.

Here is my first attempt.
It is 2 inches in diameter.
For earrings I would need two, of course.
I am not sure I could make two alike.
So I am thinking pendent.
Maybe a stone in the center since it is not too smooth.
My teen granddaughter wears this type jewelry and she said it is all the rage.

Shows up better with some color behind it.

In my jewelry studio which happens to be all my other fun things to do studio.
My kitchen table.

Wow did I get a nice surprise, I am the 1st.
Winner Takes All ATC swap at Blissfull ATC Swap.

It is too late to sign up for this first month but Wendy will do it again next month.
Check it out.
Check it out for sure.
I may be wrong about a monthly sign up.

There were about 8 folks signed up which means I will receive 7 ATC cards with my choice of  subject being Steampunk.
That way I will learn more about that subject.

Steampunk, kind of new to me.

Happy crocheting!!!!!

Peggy you are a lady of many talents. Love your pendant, I also think it would be a lovely broach.
Congrats on your win.....:-)Hugs

Thank you Bernie. A brooch is a good idea. I am using a lot of my old jewelry and something old combined with a new twist would make a nice grand gift.

Hi Peggy, I've never tried crocheting with wire. I like how your first attempt turned out. Definitely would look nice as a necklace or broach. Receiving those ATCs will be so much fun. Enjoy the rest of your week. Tammy

I just cleaned my bedroom--the depository of all things not Christmasy in December--and found a bag of wire to knit with. You inspire me to cast on a little something!
