I feel like it has taken my ages since i last issued a tutorial, but it is finally here.
Not long ago my etsy shop crossed into a new millennium and I very much wanted to celebrate it somehow, unfortunately i didn't find neither the time nor an original idea.
So today a little late I'm proud to add to my line of tutorials my popular crochet ring design.
The tutorial explains in detail how to make a band crochet ring using a crochet hook.
The pattern includes photos, illustrations and step by step explanations.

When I List a new item the hardest part would always be the tagging, I would always go to the obvious, in my view, and I'm never sure weather those would at all be the words people would search by. so I'm actually asking for a little help here. I would take a test case of one of my items "my pod hoops" and ask you to give the 14 tags you would give it.
Mine would be :
4.14k gold filled
6.hoop shape earrings
9.ISART team Israel
10.1.5 inch hoop

A friend needed (desperately) a last minute touch for her evening outfit for an important event, the outfit had a deep cleavage ....
So - since I'm such a good friend always ready to help those in need... especially when design issues pop up... since it was a last minute thing I couldn't start from scratch, I prepared her a last minute improvisation by taking half a curl from my Goldilocks earrings and hung it on a large loop. to this I added a wonderful large fresh water pearl to give it some weight and to increase the movement of the flexible curl.
The outcome in my eye is very feminine and design wise a nice combination of a trendy jewel with a classic touch.
With the photo I'm not yet quite happy, I think it will have to be taken on a live model, meaning sometime over the rainbow or just over this super busy period.
The curl is created using a tiny crochet hook in a rare technique as most my pieces are...
The chain is 20"(52cm) long and the curl with the pearl are additional 2"(5cm) .

I would have never thought I'll find myself and my shop on a black list, and why.... because someone thinks i have been featured too many times on etsy FP !!
But the most annoying part is that this blogger/bloggist calls people to stop buying from my shop (and my friends....).
Read for yourself, white on black.....
If this person which stays anonymous would have put all this energy in making treasuries as we on our ISART team do, he/she may have made it there themselves, but instead he sits at the computer and counts the no of times and hours we made it there...
