Crocheted Necklaces

I have been making hand crocheted necklaces for several years and have literally made hundreds by now in all colors, gemstones, lengths and sizes! I have many colors of silk cord but have recently been working with a new coated nylon cord. It's not as "pretty" as the silk cord and doesn't have the "hand" that I am used to, but I have grown to appreciate it for its strength and durability. Many people who wear my designs tell me they "never take them off". Not recommended of course, but that is why I now offer the coated nylon cord!

There are two steps to making these necklaces which starts with creating a large assortment of pendants in silver, bronze or copper. I generally make a large stash that I draw upon for months at a time. The second step is selecting the stones and cording that I want to use and then pairing it up with the perfect pendant. Large pendants will go on heavier nylon cord and of course the more delicate small pendants look just perfect on a dainty crocheted necklace. The choices are endless.

These necklaces are usually from 16 to 20 inches in length with a lobster claw clasp. I also make doubles and occasionally triples too. Prices vary based on the stones, glass and pendants selected.
