Vintage doily inspired bib necklaces

My new necklaces! I love old fashioned crochet work, like that you find on vintage doilies:

Mine aren't as intricate as those, but do incorporate some of the old crochet stitches. Here are my 2 new designs:

Made on the Left Sat 17 July

What an awesome time I had at Made on the Left markets today! If you're in Perth and free tomorrow, they're on again with new stallholders at The Saint hotel in Innaloo. I remembered to take my camera with me to get some photos of my stall set up...A portable clothes rack for scarves.
My hand made bunting across the front of the table. A pin up board and old wooden jewellery box for brooches and crochet necklaces. Wicker heads to display hats.
Painted wooden letters to spell my store name. Covered alligator clips as label/price card holders.
More photos at my flickr.
