Crocheted keshi pearl necklace

Straightforward single crochet helps achieve handmade jewelry look
Crocheted keshi pearl necklace

Allyson Weir of Albuquerque, N.M., wanted keshi pearls to be the focus of her necklace so she kept the structure straightforward using a single crochet. She calls her necklace “pretty but not fancy” and wants her jewelry to look handmade and somewhat irregular, saying, “Who wants jewelry to look like it was made by a machine?” – Cathy Jakicic

Tip!

Crocheting requires a lot of wire. If you’re a crochet novice, use inexpensive copper wire to practice and to figure out how much wire you’ll use in a necklace. Get a spool to be safe.
