Chevron Bead Crochet Necklace

Do you want to see what I just finished?

It’s a bead crochet necklace!

I’m super-excited about this one, because it features 2 firsts for me. It’s the first time I’ve followed a pattern in bead crochet, and it’s also the first time I’ve added a glue-on clasp:

It’s magnetic!

Isn’t that so cool?

And… more beading!

Since I’ve been feeling really into beads recently, I decided to take a class at my local bead shop. Check out this necklace I made:

wire wrapped necklace

The main technique I learned was wire wrapping (to attach the dangling sea glass beads onto the chain), and it was really fun!

And… I finished knitting a fair isle hat!

    WOW — I love all of them! I recently purchased some beads and you have officially inspired me to start working with them. I have always wanted to learn to make jewelry. 🙂

    That magnetic clasp is awesome!

    Beautiful. Well done you. I have to admit to being slightly scared of beading patterns.
