Making a Statement

I've been seeing these around lately, and I'm quite fascinated by them. These crochet necklaces aren't for the faint of heart. They're bold, funky, and as unique as the person wearing them.

And they're getting media attention too! Take a look at this article.

I've decided to share some of my favorite designs I've come across.

Here we go!

I like this one because it's classy and simple. Something you could wear with a formal gown. Although if I were to do it, I might add just a little more shape to the necklace, perhaps a bead or to to keep the movement going.
I love people who are able to freeform crochet. There's a whole movement out there of freeform and what you can do with this. I the choice of color is elegant, and I like how it doesn't have symmetry.
Ok, I'm such a sucker for bright colors and flowers. But don't worry, I'm a sucker for other things too! Still, I'm happy that the fashion right now with crochet is bright colors and dynamic designs. I like the use of beads in this necklace, lack of symmetry again, and that sassy spiral on the left side. Click on the picture. The woman who makes these has some seriously sweet designs.
This picture is a bit grainy, but still, it's a great necklace. What I like here is the way it fastens, and the merging of a traditional necklace and a more modern crochet.

Another example to get your creative juices going. I like the use of yellow and red- really, that red and yellow flower is what makes this design for me. Otherwise, all of the flowers are circles, which invokes a bubble idea. Nice, but at the same time not too original.

What do you think? I love just surfing the web for crochet ideas. Do you have any favorites? Let me know.
