This charming necklace is handmade with yellow and green crochet lace carnation flowers and unique style crochet chain. You will love this unique crochet chain, it's more comfortable and durable than normal crochet chain. You can see the detail of this lovely chain at my detail photo. This necklace is finished with waterproof coating to protect and maintain its shape. I use no metal so you can wear it comfortably even if you are allergic to metal. You can also wear it as a bracelet or headband to enjoy the beauty. 

The crochet motifs that I made for this lovely necklace is inspired from Hatayi tile motifs of Muradiye Mosque at Manisa. 

Hatayi is one of the main motifs of Tezhip (Illumination). Hatayi is a stylized pattern known as “Chinese Turkestan” origin, vertical and horizontal cross-section view of the flowers. Hatayi motifs have been applied on utensils and architectural tiles ceramics at the middle of the 16 century at Iznik. The most brilliant period of Ottoman Tile art was between 15. - 18. Centuries at Iznik. The most important feature of Iznik tiles are under-glaze decoration technique and coral red color.

The Muradiye Mosque is an historical mosque in Manisa. The mosque was designed by Ottoman imperial architect Mimar Sinan for Sultan Murat III.
