I was touched by Rio's relationship with her grandmother. and particularly related to the scene where she is curled up under her "lola's" crocheted bedspread. My grandmother crocheted bedspreads for her three adult children. She would not give them the spreads until she had finished all three. I now have my mother's crocheted bedspread.
I knew as I read those passages that I wanted to create a crocheted design. I could have wimped out and just photographed some crocheted designs from the past - jewelry and afghans. Instead, I decided to try something new. My goal was to mimic the floral motif in my grandmother's bedspread. I lot easier with cotton thread, than wire.
A necklace with more freshwater pearls finishes the look.
I think I'd like to try this again with 5 petals.
And... I'm also not sure I love it as a pendant - maybe a brooch?
BTW - that is my grandmother's amazing crocheted bedspread!
