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!
