Irish Rose Necklace

 

Finally the weekend is at the reach of the hand and I am so thankful for it. This has been a busy and hectic week and I cannot wait to wind down and relax.

But before I wave you goodbye, I want to show you a soft piece, necklace I made for a colleague of mine. I rarely take orders, but agreed to make this one because I was to make a necklace of Irish roses and anemone which I love to crochet very much. She asked me to design a piece with my favourite flowers and how could I refuse that?



Anemones, Irish and other roses and buds are the flowers I turn to most when working on flowery compositions for a simple reason. They give such lovely texture and dimension to the composition and make any necklace (or bracelet / brooch) vivid, wavy, rich and lush. Especially if studded with pearls and shiny beads. What's most important, she loved it and already wore it to work.

For a person not accepting orders, I am also making a brooch for another colleague's DIL to match one of my necklaces she bought for her as a gift. I hope to remember to make a photo of it before giving it away. With this, I bid you farewell until Sunday. I have a lovely announcement to share!

Your colleague's necklace is beautiful, Maya. I don't wonder you are not keen to take on orders.......you would be inundated with requests! You know if you ever want to say goodbye to teaching..........! =)

Lucky colleague ;-)
I understand that you do not often take orders, I also rather like to work out my own idea instead of the idea of someone else. It seems like I can't fully use my creativity when I am 'limited' to an order. Is it the same for you?
Anyhow, this necklace is gorgeous, romantic and stylish in one.
Looking forward to learn about your announcement on Sunday!

Taking orders is a tricky business. It looks OK at first, and then it turns out to be a chore, cause it takes away precious time from projects you'd rather be doing instead... I'm not taking any anymore (says who took an order for 3 ladybirds the day before yesterday). At least not any like the lucy lace shawl!
This necklace is absolutely gorgeous, like all your crochet necklaces are! Lucky colleague indeed...

Thank you Kim! Even if I say goodbye to teaching that will not be in consideration ever :)

You said it beautifully Sigrid! And yes, it is the same for me. I feel like strangled and choking, so it's not quite fun.

And I also agree with you Marjan! Altghough even I did take orders that was to make only things I have made.
