I taught this necklace at the recent CHA show in Anaheim. This is a basic crochet chain stitch done with a thin gauge of wire and embellished with beads. In my usual ‘impatient’ fashion, I found a way around having to crochet each bead on the wire. This is a fun trick you can master fairly quickly and expand upon with ease. Try not to make your stitches too big, or the necklace will get very long and the crystals will slide through the holes.
