A New Turkish Crochet Treasure


My sister-in-law recently traveled to Turkey, and knowing my passion for crochet, she is always on the lookout for unique pieces to bring me. When I saw her for the first time after she returned, she handed me a sweet little mylar envelope. Then the excitement hit me. I knew it was a special crocheted gift, and judging by what she brought me last time, I couldn't wait to see what it was! 

She said she was strolling on the sea front, and she found a bazaar with many hand-crafted items. When she saw this necklace, she said she knew it was meant for me. She knows me so well! It is made of the same lovely fine thread as the piece she brought me before. It is so nice for making jewelry, I almost think it is worth traveling to Turkey to find some. I heard there is an entire street filled with yarn shops, in Istanbul. One day I intend to visit that street!

I love the combination of the stones with the crochet. It is actually very light to wear, and will be a great statement piece to add to my collection. Now, I just have to raid my wardrobe to find the perfect top or dress that will complement it...
