Crochet Necklaces

Hi! You might not have noticed I was gone, I was away from the computer for 4 days! I have gone to a 4-day vacation to Hongkong, it was great! I'll share some pics later.
Had a lot of catching up to do, in housework and in crochet, of course!
Just in time, I got hold of Rachel's necklace patterns as soon as it came out!
Here's the first pattern I tried, its named Multi Strand Magic Necklace, I did it in black, the first one with dark green beads. And I did another one with some variation, I replaced the crocheted dc's with additional pearl beads.





Another necklace I just made - the Petal Pendant Necklace! I used Cannon size 8 and 1.5mm(no.5) hook.


I would love to try all of the neckwear patterns, I'll be buying or hunting more beads later this week :D

Update: I wore the Petal Pendant necklace when I went out today to mail some packages at the P.O. My friend there noticed it right away and kept saying it was pretty and she couldnt keep her eye off it...I took it as a compliment, and I gave her the necklace! Taking a closer look, she said I was really good in crochet. I told her it was designed by a friend ;)

When I came home, I couldnt wait to make another one. I wanted to make it in different colors. I made one in the same color as above and another one in lavender:

  2. Thanks Rachel! I told you I cant wait to make them ;) Your neckwear collection is very nice, there is always something to be worn in every occasion. The patterns were quite easy. I like it because I can improvise and come up with my own interpretation.

  5. Thanks, Tina! I think all the necklace patterns by Rachel can also be made into bracelets ;)
    Hi Sis! I'm obviously fond of pearls, the ones I used for the second necklace is the cheap kind. But if you want it, its yours! Would you want it in black thread or natural color thread? I'd prefer natural color thread for pearls, I'm considering using real pearls...What do you think?

    Natural color thread with real pearls sounds good! I was going to request for the original one you made (even if they're not real) but the thing is I don't have any earrings to match it. I think I would like to ask for the first one since it's mostly black and I can still wear silver earrings with it. =)
