My mother in law came to me asking for a bracelet. Her only stipulation was it had to be purple. With all the possibilities out there I started playing with the idea of a purple bangle with silver wrapping. As it turns out, that was WAY harder than I anticipated. So when I stumbled upon a necklace that was crocheted, I was ecstatic! I knew exactly what to do!
I called my MIL and asked if this would work. She loved the idea. I went straight to the craft store and bought the supplies to make my first crochet jewelry piece. I started working later that night and quickly realized I hated the design that was forming infront of me. So I cut all the beads out of the work and started over. Luckily, it only took one more time trying before I got the look I was going for.
