how to wear?

you can wear the necklace with the strings loose, but the intention is actually this:

put the necklace over your head with the little straight piece at the back of the neck. in this little piece the strings are fixed and they can not slide….

then make a large knot in the strings…

and wear the necklace with pleasure!

i hope you like the concept!

…..
UPDATE ONE

a small addition due to the question of whether the strings are made of only chains. they are not, see the photo below. the upper string are only chains, the lower are the two sides of a string of which the necklaces have been made. these strings meander.

UPDATE TWO

i had not realized that to others it may be difficult to imagine how it looks like when you’re wearing one of the necklaces. i thought, you put the thing over your head and then you make a knot in the strings:) i do not want to be unkind so i made a photo, it a not a good one because it is early evening and cloudy here, but it is the impression that counts, doesn’t it?

  3. They look wonderful, Elisabeth!!! I just want to let you know, that I GOT THE PACKAGE!!! Thank you SO SO MUCH!!! It is wonderful. My mom did a great job in making the liner for the big bag and the small one too. I had not idea you gave me that small one, as well. My daughter loves the string with crochet flowers! She wears it all the time now! I will write you an email! Have a wonderful weekend!

      • Hello Jennifer,

        I don’t have a tutorial for the necklace but there are tutorials for similar ‘strings’. The original link was for the tutorials by vashti braha but unfortunately, there are problems with her website and her tutorials are not accessible.
        Another tutorial can be found on the website of doris chan via this link: http://dorischancrochet.com/2011/03/27/foundation-single-crochet-2/

        Thanks for visiting.
