Bead Crochet Necklace

Just finished another project.

If you follow my blog you know that I love to crochet with beads and these “fat” crocheted necklaces are fun to make because I love designing the pattern.  This pattern is based on a native American design called “Walk in Beauty“.  Usually these necklaces are finished with a magnetic clasp and are quite a statement just by themselves.  But this time I wanted to incorporate my hollow glass beads.  So I came up with this design… that is very easy to wear ….. as it just wraps around your neck.  No clasps.  Because the large lampworked beads are hollow the necklace is still light.

Crocheting with beads is a nice project I can do while traveling.  And I have had a busy travel schedule for the last few months.  I do hate stringing on all the beads though – about 3800 in total.  But once that is done the project can travel with me.  It’s time to get another one strung.
