Bead Crochet - smaller beads, complete

My recent Bead Crochet project is least as far as the beads go.

It ended up being ~13.5", so I'll be crocheting a few chains on the ends before attaching the clasps so that it's not completely a choker.

Materials used:
Transparent Silver seed beads 10/0
Transparent holographic seed beads 10/0 reddish, pinkish, orange-ish depending on the light ;-)
Extra fine crochet thread, size 30
Size 12 steel hook
Finally obtained a twisted wire needle for threading the beads--made life MUCH easier with these tiny beads.
Toggle clasp to be added soon!

With the photographer of the family unavailable for input at the moment, I couldn't decide which picture most clearly represented it. =D Here are two.

Enjoy your weekend! I have big plans to accomplish a lot...


  1. This is very pretty! Your last couple posts on crocheting w/ beads has got me interested in learning how to do this....though I think it's best if I want until January as I have so many Christmas gifts to finish already!

  2. I hope you try!! It takes a tiny bit of getting used to, but once you get it, it's so much fun to do. It's very repetitive.

  3. Wow, that looks awesome! You did a great job! Thanks for your nice comments!

  4. Georgeous...just in time to give a Christmas outfit a bit of sparkle and pizazz!

  5. Very,very pretty. Can't wait to see them all done!

    Poof on over to Wickedly Crafty Saturdays & add these if you like. I would love to see them there!

  6. Love the look of beads. Haven't tried it yet, but it's on my list to attempt one day.

  7. I do not see how on earth you did this! It is beautifully made and photographed! This must have taken you forever. Certainly a piece of jewelry in which you should take great pride. Thank you for sharing your talent on the Boardwalk Bragfest!

  8. I've always wanted to try this! Love your necklace, and very appropriate for the season I think.. the twisting colors remind me of a candy cane!!! Very pretty!... Wishing you and yours a very blessed and Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy! ~tina

  9. Wow, this is lovely. I haven't tried bead crafts...this looks very complicated! Well done.

  10. Candy cane--what a great idea, Beansieleigh!

    Chris--I hope you try it sometime!
