Crochet Rasta Earrings.  I've made similar ones before but now I make the circles differently.  They hang about 3.5 inches and are about an inch in diameter.

Pink Elegance Earrings from the previous post.  They are about 2.5 inches long and in diameter.

Rasta Earrings.  I used a unique pattern to create these circles earrings.  They are about 2.5 inches long and in diameter.

I am presently working on a matching hat that will also feature a unique pattern.
Earth Goddess Crochet Earrings with Cowrie shells.  This is an original design that goes along with my Queen series. 

The basketweave purse is still a work in progress.  Here is what I have done so far:

 All of the pieces together.

I'll be finished by the end of the week.  This is for my mom :-). 

New Artfire Item!


I have a new item in my artfire:  The Earth Goddess Crochet Rasta Tam/Slouch Hat with Matching Earrings!

When I saw the green yarn I had to buy it!  It was a near perfect match for this beautiful jade green yarn I had purchased in NC last year.  I substituted the faces I normally use for a cowrie shell.  It features a drawstring cap to make the tam adjustable with cowrie cord stops. I absolutely love the earrings.  They were originally done like the hat but the green and brown were too similar so I did them like this.

I was working on a few other projects also.  Here is my long list (pictures to come later):

*   A thread crochet halter dress (I'll probably make it a top since my progress has been so slow).
*   A thread crochet top (the yarn is really fun!) 
*   A basketweave purse.  I was originally following a pattern, however I deviated away from it so much I ended up with something new!  I'll post the purse and maybe the pattern later.
*   A knit circular shrug.  I don't knit much and this project is a prime example as to why not.  I knit very slowly because it bores me after awhile.  I'm a little over halfway done so I am trying to find the inspiration to finish it.
*  A knit leg warmer set.  This is a more interesting project because it includes some techniques beyond knit and purl.  I've had to restart three times because of twisted stitches...they will be really nice once I get going.
*   A crochet H.  I made this for my kindergarten baby's teacher and didn't take a picture before I gave it to her.  I have to work on a crochet M pillow next for her other teacher.
*   Various crochet earrings.

The pink pair are one of the newer pairs that I have made.  The ankh ones were made a long time ago.  My niece commandeered my last pink ones.  These feature beautiful pink glass beads and swarovski's crystals.
