How to Make Crochet Jewelry
Next, I croceted a chain 6 and joined into a circle with a slip stitch. Before I joined it, I slipped out the crochet hook, so I could slip the first toggle closure piece into the ring. Then, the closure is enclosed inside the circle and very firmly attached to the piece. I particularly loved that part, its hard to attach the closure pieces to jewelry. Then, I single stitched around the ring to make it look pretty. Next, I chained out 5, then chained an additional three, then inserted the hook into the third chain from the hook. I pulled the next prestrung bead to the hook, then YO and pull through to create single crochet. Once I repeated this pattern for the length of the bracelet and installed the other closure finding, I simply went back across the piece with single crochets. At the end, I suggest cutting your yarn, tying a knot with the original end, trimming off excess, and sealing with jewelry glue to make it so your piece will never unravel.
This piece was inspired by my wedding day, which was October 11, 2010. We got married at sunset beneath a bunch of trees that were raining leaves down on us.
