Some of the Things We're Playing With

Highly textured gold pattern for free form crochet.

Lots of three dimensional texture.
It could be used as a pin or scarf pin.
I think it might be more fun in a free form crochet piece of wearable art.

Pieces for Use in Free Form Crochet
with Lampwork Beads, Yarn, Crystals, and Paper Clay

One way to do free form crochet or knitting is to make an entire piece from start to finish with one thread. These bits and pieces were created to mix into free form necklaces, earrings, rings, and assorted other fiendishly creative adornment or wearable art or exhibition pieces. We're using all kinds of yarn and thread in all kinds of juxtaposition to convey a sense of who we are and what we value. To that end, we are adapting the site to use by widely different community, social, and educational groups to explore who we are and what we value, and to reflect a tiny piece of that in "things" that will seduce others to join us in sharing with us.

The adaptation has been a tad difficult because we recognize that there are so many different levels of all kinds of skills coming together in our groups, be they community, social, political, professional, or educational. We plan to offer several levels of options for the group activity (in this case, crochet) so that beginners to experts will find something to reduce the stress that comes naturally with discussions on what's going on in our world.

The ring won't fit into a free from piece, but might go along with it, if it's wearable art. Petals formed with ch3, 3 treble, ch3, sc in same stitch. Threads still attached for fitting.

    "Child's Necklace with Coin Purse Pendant. Corticelli, 1918." at http://crochettreasures.com/freepatterns/childsnecklace.htm. This is a good example of how you can play with vintage patterns to discover new patterns and new ways of using old patterns.
