The shamrock is the symbol of Ireland and this collection of jewelry was originaly designed for a bride who wanted an 'Irish' themed wedding. This is also why all the demonstration pictures are done in white, you could of course work the jewelry in green, or the color of your choice.
You will receive the patterns for 2 different necklaces, and a bracelet.
Detailed instructions, and photos.
A little basic jewelry making skill is also useful for finishing you jewelry.
The models in the tutorial and photos were worked with DMC Cebelia size 30, and crochet hook size 0,75.
If you find it difficult to work with such fine threads and tiny crochet you can always use a larger hook and thread. But be aware that the size will be a little different, though the necklace and earrings set will still be just as lovely.
If you prefer you can use a crochet hook size 1.00 with DMC perle cotton size 8, or the thread, hook of your choice.
PS. This tutorial is for people who already know the basics of crochet.
