Quick Upcycled Necklace

It's my sister's birthday lunch today and I don't have a thing to wear. Well, now I have.

Upcycled crochet necklace

This is upcycled from a plastic ring off a scarf which was used to display it in the shop, and an old unmatched earring (its mate is lying around in Germany somewhere, ho hum). I crocheted around the ring with Anchor no 8 and some Guterman rocailles, then converted the earring into a headpin by straightening, cutting and forming a loop to attach it to the crochet. One length of chain later, I have a new necklace.

I got my button swap from Apryl yesterday! I will write a post to do it justice later on, but right now I must dash off and get the girls presentable.

Very Very pretty.
I love the colour gradients and the addition of seed-beads!

Pretty! x
