Variety crochet jewelry

I start to make jewelry only for me and now not only for me. Here is some of them.

Mandarins power by cuties from California

Most sources say that the clementine came to exist because of accidental hybridization,
with the first fruits discovered by Brother Clément Rodier (after whom the fruit was named in French and then English) in the garden of his orphanage in Misserghin, Algeria.
However, there are claims it originated in China much earlier; one source describes it as nearly identical to the Canton mandarin widely grown in the Guangxi and Guangdong provinces in China.
A clementine (Citrus ×clementina) is a hybrid between a Mediterranean Citrus ×deliciosa
and a sweet orange, so named in 1902.
The exterior is a deep orange colour with a smooth, glossy appearance.
Clementines can be separated into 7 to 14 segments.
Similarly to tangerines, they tend to be easy to peel.
They are almost always seedless when grown commercially (without cross-pollination),
and therefore are sometimes known as seedless tangerines.
The clementine is also occasionally referred to as the Moroccan clementine.
They are typically juicy and sweet, with less acid than oranges.
Their oils, like other citrus fruits, contain mostly limonene as well as myrcene,
linalool, α-pinene and many complex aromatics.
All of Sun Pacific Cuties are perfectly pure.
All bright and sweet, and sure to allure.
Our Cuties sweet taste is beyond all measure.
A superior flavor that all children treasure.
But they can’t just be sweet, they must also look cute
I love to eat citruses during winter an especially mandarins.
When I saw stickers on them, I wanted to crochet one of them.

Halloween and sea

Halloween, or Hallowe'en (a contraction of All Hallows’ Evening), also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed.
A sailor, seaman, mariner, or seafarer is a person who navigates waterborne
vessels or assists as a crewmember in their operation and maintenance.
The term bluejacket may be used for British or US Navy enlisted sailors,
the latter especially when deployed ashore as infantry.
Etymologically, the name "sailor" preserves the memory of the time when ships were commonly powered by sails, but it applies to the personnel of all vessels,
whatever their mode of propulsion, and includes military (naval) and security (coast guard) maritime personnel and members of the merchant marine, as well as recreational sailors.
The term "seaman" is frequently used in the particular sense of a sailor who is not an officer.

Real animals and them crochet :)

 I made two different dogs: one Basset Hound and two Mini Schnauzers.

These 2 breeds are so differs and so alike.
 The Basset Hound is a large purebred known for being affectionate, alert, friendly, gentle, and sweet.
Generally the Miniature Schnauzer is a small dog with a whole lot of heart and has a pleasant, playful, spunky temperament that fits well into a lot of homes.
The most common colors for Basset Hounds are black and tan, brown, gray, red, tricolor, and white.
To keep it healthy, it will need to get exercise regularly.
The Basset Hound commonly participates in hunting and tracking.
Basset Hound is able to move legs, to sit and to stay.
I used white and brown 100% acrylic yarn, small amount pink and blackcotton, 2 buttons for eyes.
 H.3.50mm. Fiberfill.
 The Miniature Schnauzer is a small purebred known for being alert, friendly, intelligent, and playful. The most common colors for Miniature Schnauzers are black, silver, and white. The outer coat is wiry and the undercoat is soft. The coat is clipped so it has a bushy beard, mustache and eyebrows.
To keep it healthy, it will need to get exercise regularly. Known to be multi-talented, the Miniature Schnauzer participates in a wide variety of activities such as agility, competitive obedience, earthdog, hunting, and tracking.
2Mini Schnauzers are able to move legs, to sit and to stay.
I used 80% acrylic and 20% wood  grey heather yarn, small amount 
black cotton, 4 buttons for eyes.
 H.3.50mm. Fiberfill.
After I put together, I did some grooming: brush and trim dogs face, eyebrows, and legs .

Beside in classical mythology, Cupid (Latin Cupido, meaning "desire") is the god of desire,
erotic love, attraction and affection.
He is often portrayed as the son of the love goddess Venus and the war god Mars, and is known in Latin also as Amor ("Love"). His Greek counterpart is Eros.

Bunnies :)

Hi, everyone
Today I would like to present a crochet bunny or rabbit .
I love them for cute, fluffy look with little tail and distinctive long ears.
Of course, do not forget they have claws, rabbits can use its.
However, my crochet bunnies only have cute, adorable and perfect look.
Here are few more fact which I wish I could have.
Rabbits have an excellent sense of smell, hearing and vision. They have nearly 360° panoramic vision, allowing them to detect predators from all directions. They can see everything behind them and only have a small blind-spot in front of their nose.
That vision is really awesome. I think all of us wish have that.
