Christmas Cuffs

For the first time in absolutely ages I actually made some jewellery today. I've been promising mum I'd make her some simple, pink crystal earrings for months, and I know she wants them for a wedding she is (hmm, what's the right word - conducting, executing (!), doing (how boring), presiding over, celebrating), anyway, she is the celebrant and the wedding is next weekend. So I thought I'd better hurry up a make them. That took all of 3 minutes. Yes, after months of avoiding doing it. How embarrassing. Seeing as all my equipment was out by that stage I figured I might as well make myself something while I was at it. Not abandoning my current obsession with crochet, I whipped out a light weight wire, a 2mm crochet hook and produced a couple of christmasy cuffs, or bracelets if you prefer, both of which I'm really pleased with! And for your viewing pleasure.... (NB: its actually really hard to photograph your own right hand. Yes, you're right, I should have put the bracelet on the left hand and it would have been a whole lot simpler.)
