It’s not every day I don a crocheted ensemble, a seashell necklace that is weighty as it’s beautiful, and prance around the beach like a love-struck mermaid’s first time on land. But that’s the effect Salita Matthews‘ vibrant leather and sea-creature “Time Stands Still” necklace has on one. You can’t blame me for being hopelessly captivated by its composition, colour and character. Plus it even cajoled me into chanting ‘She sells seashells by the seashore.‘ I know. Hopeless.
Although your mind is now probably filled with exotic holiday scenes, why leave a crocheted ensemble sea-bound only? Wear it to lunch, dinner, or even to buy seafood, just add a little slip underneath for legal protection. I’d wear this to the library, to borrow a book on how to crochet. Think of all the endless possibilities: crochet dresses, scarves, bags, bikinis… they may even win a glance from Margherita Missoni.
