Pendant or necklace with a shell in a crochet frame
The idea of crocheting a frame for a sea shell crossed my mind a long ago but it took me some time to find how to realise it and obtain the result I wanted. Now I can finally explain it to you in this pattern and even show how to make a beautiful necklace using this caged shell.
I used Oke! Crochet cotton for the pink shell’s frame and blue turquoise and orange mercerised cotton (100gr/395m) for the necklace.
This creation is unique and is my own invention.

The idea of « Nature aux fils » came from a distant childhood memory of a 3D flower knitted, I think, on a skirt's strap by my talented grandma for me. Inspired by nature, I want my crochet flowers and other creations as realistic as possible but I don't want to copy nature and reproduce the whole flowers because I know that I'll never do better, so I introduce them into my pieces of jewellery.
The patterns that I publish here are unique and were designed by me with great care and passion. Today I want to share my secrets with you. My technique is simple but new and original, it permits you to obtain a needed shape rather easily. I also use some unusual materials that everyone can have at home but doesn't think to use.
Welcome to my universe!
