Bead Crochet Necklace with paisley design

Paisley- is a design using the droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Persian origin. Such designs became very popular in the West in the 18th and 19th centuries. The pattern is sometimes called "Persian pickles".
The pattern is still popular in Iran and South and Central Asian countries. It is woven using gold or silver threads on silk or other high quality textiles for gifts, for weddings and special occasions.
But its use goes beyond clothing – paintings, frescoes, curtains, tablecloths, quilts, carpets, garden landscaping, and pottery, and also jewelry.

In my Bead Crochet necklace also used paisley pattern.

Fingerless gloves - a fashion accessory.

Gloves appear to be of great antiquity. There are occasional references to the use of gloves among the Romans. A gauntlet, which could be a glove made of leather or some kind of metal armour, was a strategic part of a soldier's defense throughout the Middle Ages. During the 13th century, gloves began to be worn by ladies as a fashion ornament. They were made of linen and silk, and sometimes reached to the elbow. It was not until the 16th century that gloves reached their greatest elaboration, however, when Queen Elizabeth I set the fashion for wearing them richly embroidered and jewelled. Embroidered and jeweled gloves also formed part of the insignia of emperors and kings.

When short sleeves came into fashion in the 1700s, women began to wear long gloves, reaching half-way up the forearm. By the 1870s, silk, or velvet gloves were worn with evening or dinner dress, but long suede gloves were also worn during the day and when having tea.

Gloves which cover the entire hand but do not have separate finger openings or sheaths are called mittens. Generally, mittens still separate the thumb from the other four fingers. They have different colours and designs. Gloves are made of materials including cloth, knitted or felted wool, leather, rubber, latex.
Fingerless gloves or "glovelettes" are garments worn on the hands which resemble regular gloves in most ways, except that the finger columns are half-length.
Fashion gloves and fingerless gloves reached up to the present day.
Fingerless gloves are also worn by bikers as a means to better grip the handlebars, as well as by skateboarders and rollerbladers, to protect the palms of the hands and add grip in the event of a fall.
 Also fingerless gloves are very popular with cyclists.

Nowadays, thanks to the boundless imagination of designers, gloveletty and mitts have many styles, different variety of color schemes, designs and applications. Wool or cashmere mittens and gloves are perfectly combined not only with a knitted and denim or corduroy clothing.
