Hello everybody I'm pleased to introduce my latest finished product, a one-off piece of artwork that will beautify any wall or desk. The background consists of a purple and white filet mesh. This has been crocheted (by me) using Coats Mercer 20 thread and a 0.75mm steel hook. The mesh has a total of 3,350 tiny squares and took approximately 20 hours over several days to crochet. The snowflakes were crocheted with white 30 count thread (no brand name available) and the same 0.75mm hook. Each snowflake took between 1-2 hours each to make and they have been blocked with water (to keep their shape) and partially sewn on to the mesh. The white beads have been individually sewn on to add a feeling of snow to the piece. The yellow frame has been shop-bought and measures 27 x 22cm. There is a glass pane protecting the work and a thick cardboard backing with hooks to hang the item on the wall and a stand to support it on a desk. In total the item weighs 557g. The price includes UK taxes and postage and packaging. International shipping is available - email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with your region/country and I'll get back to you with a quote. International delivery fees will have to be paid for by the customer. Thanks so much for visiting my website, I'd be happy to hear from you! Further information All of the crochet artwork I make will continue to be one-offs. This is mainly due to Coats Mercer 20 crochet thread no longer being manufactured in the UK so once I've run out of a colour, it's gone, and will be replaced by a different shade or colour and brand. Any Coats Mercer 20 thread available online is most likely to have been in hiding for a very long time. It resurfaces now and again with plenty of keen crocheters keeping an eye on ebay and the like!
