Spring, Chocolate & Jewelry

Click here to see this necklace in My Etsy Store!

Spring, Chocolate & Jewelry - Aren't those 3 of your favorite things? Well I love all three and that was my inspiration behind this beautiful pink & chocolate necklace. I love the first flowers - daffodils, tulips, hyacinth... all popping through the ground. I love the smell of brownies baking in the oven, or rich melty chocolate fudge dripping down my sundae. And Jewelry... well that speaks for itself to anybody who knows me. :)

So today as our high temps here in WI struggled to reach hmmmmm 8, yes that is eight, 8 degrees above zero and the wind was biting your cheeks and nose, I made a delicious pot of coffee and sat down to think warmer thoughts. Think of new growth, think of warming sunshine, think of the fawns we see in our woods every May/June. All those things put a wonderful smile on my face.

What spoke to me in creating this design was the soft pink of the pendant and glass beads warmed by the chocolate color of the accent beads. I love pink and brown as a color combination and think this piece really blends the two together beautifully!

Wherever you are, whatever the temperature is in your neighborhood... think spring and all wonderful new growth. Here's to warmer days, and a wonderful year!

Good Morning Lisa! I think it's a Grandma thing! My grandmother still sings as she cleans and it just warms my heart! ♥

Hi, Dawn! Thanks for visiting my blog! I was fascinated by the first piece of wire crochet jewelry I saw. I just searched the internet for everything I could find on wire crochet and began experimenting. I've picked up bits and pieces from different websites. There are a lot of books available. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Thanks Jana! I've been tinkering with wire and a hook and I've ordered a few books off of Amazon, and I'm anxiously awaiting their delivery. So thanks very much for the input and I only hope I can create designs as beautiful as yours!
