New crocheted necklaces, sea inspired

Two more freeform crocheted necklaces which I fifnished recently. I'm so excited with result and will experiment more to find out new styles, materials and possibilities. Crochet jewelry is now my second passion after felting).

"Purple corals" - "corals" was crocheted from cotton, embelished with many seed beads (oh, it took so much time!) with metal chain and clasp.

Crocheted freeform jewelry and trip to the south

I was travelling during last two week. In the car, on the beach, in the evening at campin I was crocheting, so now I have several unfinished projects of freeform crocheted necklaces from yarn and different beads - gemstone, glass, coral. I'm going to finish all of them soon. Here they are -

And now about our trip. We left Moscow early in the morning and drove to the south. After 1.5 days we arrived to  new rock-climbing place near village Guamka on the north of Caucasus mountains. There is small river in the canyon -

All climbong spots difficult to find in the forest. One time we found and climbed there. One time we could not find but found mushrooms in the forest near the river.

After this we moved to other rocks "Induk" (turkey). The road to top waS too steep, we drove up throw the forest almost where the rocks begun -

Last meters to good place for camping we went by foot, there was no road more.

This is one of rocks on the top -

After 2 days we went to Black Sea coast -

And then we decided to move to Azov Sea which is very good for kids because of its sand beaches. It's very beautiful place Dolzhanskaya spit. We walked and swimmed and one day hubby rent kayak and went to the end of spit and made pictures of birds.

During the way to home we stayed for two days in beautiful place near city Elets 450km from Moscow and had great time climbing and walking.

This the longest post I have even written:)) Thank you for reading and sorry for the mistakes!
