YOJ 2008 Week 7

This weeks theme was Amore'. I've wanted to try my hand at a crocheted bezel around a stone for quite a while so thought I'd give it a try this week. I had this heart shape carnelian stone I got a couple of years ago and some 30ga fine silver wire that I'd had forever (it seems). I had no idea what size crochet hook to use so I just grabbed a number 5. The bezel does need a bit more stabilizing but turned out pretty good. This will be kept for a personal piece.

Thank you Janice! It was really kind of fun to make. A bit of a challenge but fun none the less.
