Crochet Necklace for Crafts Unleashed

Crochet Necklace for Crafts Unleashed

This is one of my favorite beading projects ever.  I made it for the website CraftsUnleashed.com.  I have recently started to design for them.  There is a great variety of projects available on the site.  Check it out when you have time.

 

If you know how to crochet, and you like to make jewelry, then this is a fabulous technique to incorporate into your jewelry-making repertoire.  The technique is a simple chain stitch with beads added.  If you do not know how do a chain stitch there are directions below.

When choosing your beads you will want to pick beads that are similar in size.  I used all 6mm beads and I would not go much bigger than that.  Also, long tube beads do not work very well.  If you want to have a multi-strand necklace use more wire and add additional beads.

Materials:

One spool of silver ming 28 gauge wire

Jewelery Designer Glass Beads Spectra Multi 6mm -40 for a single strand choker, 20 for single strand bracelet. ( 100 for multi-strand necklace and 50 for a multi-strand bracelet.)

Crochet hook, size G.

Wire cutters and needle-nose pliers

Findings:

Jill MacKay Collection Sterling Plated Magnet Clasp

Genevieve Gail Novelty Crystal Dangle

Silver Jump Rings

If you are interested in learning how to make this necklace or one similar to it you can click on this link to Crafts Unleashed.com for full directions.  The links above will take you too the website if you are interested in purchasing the materials.  When creating for Crafts Unleashed I am supplied the materials to make the project.
