River Rocks, Meet Crochet Thread

Earlier this year I began making pendants using river rocks.  I of course combined them with crochet.  Crochet thread, to be exact.  Using a teeny, tiny size B hook. (All pictures are larger than actual size.)

I was highly inspired by Resurrection Fern‘s covered stones, an example of which can be seen here.
They usually take me around 25-30 minutes each, but it is time well spent.  I love the randomness of the patterns, the spider webb-like design that unfolds as I work.

More than anything, though, I love the fact that there IS no pre-written pattern to follow.  The flow of the rock determines how each pendant is made.  In some ways, the rock decides more than I do what the final design will be, whether it is something intricate:

or something simple:

These are just of a few of my favorite ones.  You can see all 10 of them at my Flickr page.
