Crochet Beaded Necklace

November 4, 2013

This is a really simple crochet project. String beads on some thread, do a simple crochet chain, adding beads as you go, and voilá, a pretty necklace!

I used a mix of gray Swarovski crystal beads, round clear beads, and larger dark gray beads. The thread is a 2-ply silver metallic thread.

This is one of my all-time favorite projects. It’s pretty, I wear it often, and no one has identified it as homemade. I should probably include a photo of me wearing it so you can see how nicely it hangs, but I really don’t want a close-up of my neck posted on the internet for eternity.

Project notes:

  • I followed the instructions in this tutorial. She provided instructions for attaching the clasp, but that part was still difficult for me, since I’m not a jewelry maker. Thankfully, the staff at my local bead store is knowledgeable and helpful, and they were able to walk me through it.
  • Be sure to string all the beads you will need for the strand before you start crocheting. You may want to add a few more than you think you need to be safe.
  • As you can see by the photos, I made a two-strand necklace instead of the three-strand shown in the tutorial. One strand didn’t look like enough, but two was plenty for me.


  1. This is stunning!
