Earthy Twist

When my Mother-In-Law was visiting from Oxfordshire, she spotted a necklace I was making for my Mum, and as she was admiring it I offered to make her one too.

She chose her colours and I set to work.

I was a couple of inches in when I decided I didn't like it, it just didn't work for me. So I simply swapped a chocolate brown bead for a smokey grey one (the smallest bead you can see in the design) and it looked totally different.

I ended up doing a necklace, bracelet and earrings for her, adding a button as a fastening. I like buttons as fastenings, they are so easy to manage when taking the jewellery on and off.

Luckily she didn't mind the change at all, and loved it.
Result ! :)


  1. Lovely, I think the fasten is great!

  2. Hi Sooz, it's Maria, watching your blog as promised... Lovely set:-) I haven't learnt any spiral stitches yet but I will soon!
