** There is a vast amount of crochet patterns published both in print and on the internet, and although all of my patterns come from my imagination and are written down as I crochet the item, if you believe that any of my patterns resemble someone else's pattern, please email me at dlyrs@juno.com or you can leave me a comment here on my blog. If my pattern was created after the one in question - it will be removed. Thank you. :) **

~ glass gems ~

When I saw 'this post' this morning, it reminded me of a favorite craft I used to do around about 4 or 5 years ago.  I used to sell sets of these glass gems on Ebay along with my crochet hooks, but of course, it didn't go too well.  

I printed out pictures of my crochet projects that I have posted on my blog and crafted these glass gems.  These gems are the larger ones - they measure around 1" to 1 1/4" and I bought them at the Dollar Tree.  The rectangle gem is a microscope slide.  Now all I have to do is get some heavy duty magnets.  I'm thinking I might take a few to work to attach to my file cabinets.  

This craft is a quick and easy craft to do.  It's fun too.  :)

  2. They're certainly one of a kind. I think they're cute.
