I made a couple of these flowers as an experiment, but they really didn't work with my freeform project. I offered them to Miss Mae who is great at embellishing clothes and things and she said she'd like to make a necklace out of them. After I thought about it for a while I had a light bulb moment and this project was the result.
The "chain" of crochet rings was inspired by Tatyana Mirer's Sweet and Simple Bracelets in the July 2010 issue of Crochet!, but the construction is different. This chain is made up of individual crochet rings that are connected (sewn) together. It doesn't take as long as you'd think - the sewing can be completed in a couple of hours. Pattern coming!
