I need a selfie stick

I spent a weekend a few weeks ago making crochet necklaces with cotton and beads:

Goldstone! glass beads with sparkly flecks of copper

Then I stepped it up a notch and had a go at some bead stitching. Also, I crocheted gold thread to make the chain below. I was surprised at just how much it looks like a delicate gold chain. It’s very light but seems strong so far.

When I was about 15 I developed an extreme allergy to metal. You don’t realise how much metal you have on you on a daily basis. Watches, belt buckles, zips, buttons, studs in trousers, spectacles. So making metal-free jewellery became a hobby. I wish I’d had this gold (made of plastic) thread back then.

Look at the effort of concentration on my face trying to get the necklace into the shot. I think I need a selfie stick!
