agate 4 mom

How could I not make these for my mom?

She loves necklaces, and she is asking me to make some of these for her ever since she saw the very first one I made.
I finally got around to finish.


She picked these two beautiful stones.



She wanted a thinner cord than the kind I normally use.
And for the green one, she also wanted the cord to match the stone.
(pickyyyyy!!!)

These necklaces are inspired by the similar ones from designer Brook&Lyn made for Anthropologie and are made with the same technique that I showed in this tutorial: check it out if you want to make some for yourself!

Basic crochet skills, and a little patience sewing around the cord. Really, you can make it too!!

...Making mom happy... priceless! 
(and no master card needed!!!)

xox, d.

will party here

  1. You did a beautiful job on the necklaces. I love both stones but the green is my favourite. I love how you finished each necklace differently.
