CROCHETED RINGS



crochet from a beautiful Cream Cotton and an added vintage mother Pearl button to set it off.



Oversized textile jewellery is hot news, and these delightful crochet rings are a great way to make a statement. Made in delicate colours these flowers are just so pretty.

They’re quick to make using a sparkling crochet yarn, and the pearls add a touch of luxury. A great gift idea or maybe just a treat for yourself.
