Easy Crocheted Beaded Necklace

I found these beads this weekend. They look a little like crackle glass. I thought it would make a pretty summer necklace.

The supplies I used was "silver" crochet cotton thread, glass beads and crochet hook (I used a size B).

Before I do any stitching I thread all my beads onto the crochet thread.

Then I crochet a simple chain stitch.

I crocheted ten chains....

then I slide one bead down the thread and crochet ten more chains. This "locks" the bead in place.

I continued until my necklace was long enough. I made enough to wear the necklace long or I am able to double it.

Easy Peasy.

Hi, Danielle. I found your comment on Rebecca Sower's blog and thought I'd take a look at yours. I've been doing the same thing as you've done on this post. Take a look to see how different the tecnique looks with colored beads, buttons and odds and ends-- Aug 27th post. I wouldn't have thought of this if I hadn't been visiting Rebecca. Your necklace is lovely with the crackled beads. Have a great day.

I love the necklace, thanks for sharing how too. I wanted a necklace with beads to use a lovely vintage pendant I found at a flea market. This is just what I was looking for!
