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.
