I always love everything that Maya makes over at Little Treasures, so it’s no surprise that I love the things that inspire her as well. I was immediately captured by her post about crochet jewelry artist Miho Fujita and was compelled to find out more information about the artist if I could.
Last fall I received a beautiful wooden jewelry frame from eWoodStory, which I filled with some textured crochet. I was happy with what I created, but it’s absolutely nothing compared to some of the stunningly beautiful works of art that have emerged inside of these little frames. They aren’t just filled with crochet – people are filling them with embroidery and other stitchery as well – and I swear every time I see a creation I think it’s better than the last.
I’ve always loved crochet jewelry. And yet, I had hesitated to make much of it other than a few necklaces here and there that were tied simply behind the neck without any kind of jewelry clasp. My hesitation was that I’d never made jewelry before and wasn’t sure what to purchase. Of course, I could have figured it out with some research and practice, but I’d never gotten around to it. Then I got the opportunity to try modme kits and it made it so simple to start creating crochet jewelry that I had to give it a try.
