So often Irish Crochet Lace can look antique, but by using modern color combinations with contemporary materials your projects can look anything but old. Try playing with color combinations for your perfect jewelry. Monochromatic motifs can bring out the texture and stitch definition of each stitch, where bold colors on the single crochet rounds can bring out the geometric shapes hidden in the motifs.
