Bright Spring Project...in process

I actually spent time this morning with a giant plastic crochet hook and some 24 gauge yellow craft wire.

It's been quite a while since I crocheted with beads and wire, so a good hour or so was spent just getting the hang of it again.

I went through all my beads and when I came across a bunch of Crystazzi beads in aqua, green, and capri blue. I knew right away it seemed like the right combination. The bright yellow really sets off the other colors.

The prototype is finished, but I want to add a couple other strands so it's back to the drawing board.

I hope to have it done this week so I can share.

In the mean time, I'd love to hear from anyone who is working on a fun springy project, especially wire crochet. Please share your project and tips!

I used bead crochet for my BSBP7 project...here's a link to the blog post. http://www.vikingcraft.blogspot.com/

It was a treat to do!

Wow, Katie! For your first try, that is AWESOME, you would definitely think you'd been wire crocheting for a while! Thanks for sharing!

Wire crochet is not mine. I love Viking Knit much better. Can't wait to see your piece, as I love the bead colors very much.
