Crochet has been one of my favorite techniques and though I have made a lot of accessories using this technique , I have hardly made any jewelry using this technique . One thing I found to my surprise is that I could use a lot of smaller bits of yarn left over from my previous projects . Also since I am well versed with crochet , it does not take me long ( unlike beading ) to complete a project . And above all , what made me happy was that I could create and transform whatever I imagined into reality very quickly without any trial and error , a normal occurrence with my bead projects .

The center pendant is made with crochet and I have made two layers to give it a thicker look and to attach the faux coral cabochon . I have then joined both the layers with red yarn . Since I was already well versed with the crochet caps or half of the bead you could call , from my earlier theme , it took only a couple of hours to finish . Using embroidery yarn , I created the net on the bottom of the pendant. I had a mossy shaded green yarn left over from my embroidery project
It was only the final assembly that took a day . The attached corals just would not remain in place. I tried using yarn , but the crochet net was a little limp ,which caused the corals to droop downwards because of the weight of the glass beads . It took time to get the look I wanted as I had to reassemble the necklace once again . But I think , after all , the necklace has turned out pretty well and I am happy with the result .
Wow ....yet another necklace done ! And it`s getting to be quite addictive .....
what do you say ? do write and let me know how you found it ,
Happy crafting till next time
