I absolutely love this recycled silk yarn I was gifted.
It looks like jewels in the light, so I thought I’d make some jewelry.
I used broomstick crochet to make a cuff bracelet and three vintage & antique mother-of-pearl buttons.
I really love the colours! It’s a bit stiff at first but the work you “work” the fabric the softer it becomes. I made it a little tight as I find crochet cuffs tend to stretch after being worn for a bit.
I then made a five chain necklace with another vintage mother-of-pearl button. I think the black part of the button is some type of vintage rubber or hard leather. It’s got a softness to it and it’s quite old.
This is the only selfie I could get that was half decent. lol, I don’t photograph well I guess. The necklace is more of a choker. I’m thinking of making some for the shop, what do you think?
