Welcome to my new contribution to the Blogfire Carnival: Necklaces. Since I've been pretty focused on my recent crochet approach to necklaces, I decided to search both Artfire and Etsy for examples of crochet neck pieces by other artists.
I chose 8 pieces to showcase here. The links to each item and the artist's shop are below each collage and are listed clockwise beginning with the upper left corner.

I must mention again that Eileen's blog - bluebirdluxe, has an incredible article on this topic (and was my inspiration for this post.) If you like statement neck pieces and crochet, drop by for a look at more possibilities! And while I'm on this topic, there is a drawing you can enter for a chance to win a wonderful new book to help inspire and guide your own crochet for wearables. The prize is a new publication by author Linda Permann called Crochet Adorned and it will be a beautiful addition to any crocheter or crafter's library. You may enter until 3-24-2010.
Finally, a reminder that you can enter to win your choice of one of my new crocheted (Silk and Pearl) necklaces to add to your own Spring wardrobe! There are different ways you may enter, for up to 3 entries per person! Hurry, entries are due by Saturday, March 19 and the winner will be announced on Sunday, March 20.
So how about that? Beautiful examples of crocheted necklaces, a chance to win a free book to help you make your own, and a chance to win one of my creations, all in one post that I've written for the Blogfire Carnival! (Artfire Bloggers.) I can't believe I was this organized around one topic! Now you can go see what the other Artfire bloggers are up to for this carnival. The full list of participants will be visible on Friday, March 19.
