Birthday Gift Given...

Here is an ensemble I made for one of my dear friends.  We celebrated her birthday with a day of lunch and shopping at a beautiful nursery and gallery and fabric shops.  There were four of us Ladies Who Lunch.  It was a wonderful day.  Very relaxed and just right.  Even the weather was wonderful.
This is one of my favorite crocheted necklaces I have posted about.  You may click here to see the previous post and how-to.
This trellis yarn is a really pretty silver with several shades of blue.  She loves blue as much as I do so no decision to make here.  I wanted to include some earrings so I managed to crochet and fashion a pair with vintage pearls to match.  The bracelet has no yarn but the beads are in the same colors as the necklace and earrings. If you can see on the necklace I did a new tweak to it.  I added the large hole beads at each side just above the knots.  They really add a nice flair.  
My friend really liked her gift.  I am so grateful to be able to create things personalized for each recipient.
Happy Creating and enjoy your weekend...
