Valentine's GIFT for him or her - Wire Crochet GIFT

January 24, 2017

Valentine's day gift

Yes ! wire crochet goes beyond jewelry :) !
Valentine's gift for him
As neither my hubby nor my son don't wear jewelry, I could never crochet them anything other than hats, which I pushed to the limit this year, making my son three hats and my hubby 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 toght in .
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 together, no change of color or deformation of the wires.
if you love them and want to make a few small gifts, below you can find  a short video showing you how to .
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
and here it goes ..

I know for most of you the sea and sun holidays are over, unless of course you are on the southern hemisphere side of life ;)  so this might be a suggestion for this year or for the next, I warmly recommend taking a compact crochet kit with you when you go on vacation, take only the essential tools and a few materials, so it is not too heave, do that just in case you will get inspired like I do ;)

Those of you that are with me for a while must have already heard me say this, those of you that haven't actually hear it must have noticed it, I LOVE simplicity, in my view simple is clear, simple is easy, simple is fun and we should enjoy every moment ;) don't get me wrong, I'm not saying challenges can't be fun too, but simplicity has its charm.
