Valentine's GIFT for him or her - Wire Crochet GIFT
Yes ! wire crochet goes beyond jewelry :) !
As the men in my life don't wear jewelry, I could never crochet them anything other than hats which I pushed to the extreme this year, making my son three hats and hubby just one.
That's a lot concerning I haven't used yarn for years.
But back to our topic- crochet gift for man for Valentine's Day or for any other day.
The idea of making a little sweet something to be placed on their desk and smile at them while they work, if they work next to a desk, coming to think of that not everybody does, came to mind ages ago, I knew exactly what I want to put at the top , but I couldn't figure out what to make the cube of.
It was stuck in mind that I'm looking for a wooden cube , but the cubes I could put my hands on at y local craft store were too small and not that nice, besides I don't like drilling ... and wood would require drilling.
The change of plans came alive thanks to the Polymer Clay Adventure I'm teaching in , (click HERE if you haven't read about it yet).
Thanks to that I had some polymer clay lying around the studio ....
Earlier this year while preparing my lesson to PCA I experimented in backing the wire and clay to bond , and learned it works perfectly well, no change of color or deformation of the wires.
if you love them and want to make a few as gifts, below you can find a short video showing you how .
The materials and equipment you will require are :
1. 28 gauge Wire in your colors choice
2. Crochet hook size 0.6/0.75/1
3. ISK starters , size S (12loops) & M (24 loops)
3. Polymer Clay
