Learned a new technique.
I saw a beautiful necklace a few years ago at a local jewelry shop at Pier Village in Long Branch (on the boardwalk). It appeared to be crocheted wire with black and white beads crocheted into the necklace. Recently I came across a YouTube video showing instructions how to make this type of necklace. At first it was a little difficult but, as you work on it, it gets easier. Here is my first crocheted necklace:
This necklace is made up of white pearls, aqua crystals and aqua glass twist beads on gold wire with a pretty clasp. It is a three strand necklace braided together. Came out really nice.
Here is my second crocheted necklace in browns:
This one has large tan glass pearls, smaller chocolate pearls, small gold crystals and larger beige button crystals, again 3 gold wire strands braided together. They can both be seen at my Etsy shop: Polymer Panache. https://www.etsy.com/listing/123836870/statement-necklace-crocheted-tan
