Beaded necklace

I sometimes dabble in crochet but it is not my favorite thing to do. I think I hold the hook too tightly and my fingers always hurt after I crochet. I also favor the finer stitches that knitting produces. However there are just times when you can’t pass up a crocheted project!


I made this necklace for my mom for mother’s day this past May. It was perfect and so quick. I have some more beads for others; I just need to find different wire. I couldn’t get the strands to hang flat, I’m not sure if that is because of my tight gauge, or the light beads. These will make wonderful gifts.
