Freeform Crochet Necklace - Bottle Top Necklace

I have been wanting to make a 3d necklace for some time and have looked at what others have done for some inspiration. I see many others either use cork/poly balls or even large glass beads and crochet over them.

I really didnt want to buy something like that to crochet over, or even hide nice glass beads under crochet. So I have been thinking about what i could upcycle for this purpose.

This is what i came up with.

Crochet in camo coloured cotton - over bottle tops!

Im not sure what i think, but i do think its different!

I meant to update the blog with photos of my trip to Tignes. But the day i arrived back in work, i found out i had been made redundant. Bummer. So was a bit down in the dumps, and i havent really looked at the holiday pics or vids.

But I finally picked myself out of my :( feeling, and I have managed to land my self 2 job offers. I have the weekend to decide now :Z

But over this time, i have been busy, so here are a few shots of what I have done.
