    Hey, you had me fooled — I thought it was some exotic new beading technique! LOL I even Googled it to see what it was and that’s when it asked if I meant “crochet”. ROTFLOL So don’t feel bad about misspelling it — you could have told me anything and I’d have believed you! :D

    This is a really gorgeous necklace with a beautiful and serene color choice. I’ve done a little crochet work but my stitches are awfully irregular in size. Guess I need lots more practice.

    Very lovely Reet! I love how you improvised, and created such a gorgeous piece in the process. It certainly gives the chunky look, but with a lightness about it that makes it quite special. I hope that the person you designed it for liked it. :)
