Description

This steam punky, gothic, "guns and roses" style smoky grey skull cameo is completely assembled and handmade by me.

Time to make: 2.5 hrs, including crochet lace worked into a special metal frame with the tiniest antique crochet hook.

I also hunted far and wide for these cameos in this particular color. And I hunted for just the right frame that I could work with. This brooch can also be a pendant. I used cotton crochet thread for this particular design and blocked each loop individually.

This is a very unique OOAK mix-media hand-crocheted work. You will receive this exact item pictured.

Cameo brooch measures roughly 2" x 2 3/8" or 5 cm x 6 cm.

For maker's reference:
This is not exactly a beginner's crochet project. And aside from an experienced hand, it requires just the right tools, including an antique hook and pliers, to successfully create this look. I broke other crochet hooks trying to create this idea until I found the right one I could work with. This kind of metal mixed with crochet thread lace work is brutal on many tools. My antique hook is so tiny I don't know how to size it. But it's great, because it's forged.

I like for my customers to have choices with the pieces that I make, so a nice addition to this particular design is that the cameo itself can be worn as either a pin-back brooch, or as a pendant. This brooch can even be pinned to a strip of velvet and worn as a focal piece on a choker. (Please see the photo of the back side. Necklace not included in this listing.)

I have a limited supply of these frames and skull cameos, so snatch one while you can!

With over 38 years of crochet design experience, and a passion for clever design, you can trust that I created this piece with the utmost of experience and care.

Designer's note: Want to know where the proceeds from your purchase goes? I want to travel the world to meet other crocheters and create a documentary on crochet and crochet hooks. (I make hooks too.) Read more on my blog at: http://AberrantCrochet.wordpress.com.
