Casual and Elegant Beaded Crocheted Jewelry
Why I Love Crocheted Necklaces
These crocheted necklaces are now my favorite type of jewelry to make and wear. Why? They are casual yet elegant. They look great with jeans or a dress. On top of that, they are super comfortable, due to being light-weight and soft to the touch. They don't tarnish and you don't have to worry about breaking them. How great is that?
What makes them sturdy? Strong cording is used so that they hold up well. These three necklaces pictured below, all have a loop clasp with a large bead on the end that goes through the loop for easy securing. The beads are actually crocheted and worked into the handmade chain, so they will never come off. Just remember to keep scissors away from your crocheted necklaces.
After seeing these type of necklaces at the beach and high-end resorts selling for $50 and up, and not wanting to pay that much, I was inspired to learn how to make them. They looked so difficult and complex. However, if you know how to crochet and have an eye for beads, then it is not as hard as you may think. The biggest challenge is using a far smaller needle than typically used for crochet. After some time, you do get used to it.
Another great thing about crocheted necklaces is that they can easily be worn as bracelets or even anklets. You would wrap the necklace around your wrist or ankle a few times, enough so that there is little slack, and then secure the loop clasp.
I love wearing and creating these crocheted necklaces. They are fun, whimsical, and extremely versatile. If you are interested in learning how to make this type of jewelry, check out the video below. You will be very surprised at how easy it is. If you already know how to crochet a basic chain, then you are more than halfway there!
