Did you know that you could crochet a pearl necklace? Sure you could. There are many amazing things you can do with crochet -- and that is one of them.
Of course, if you have budget limitations (and who doesn't these days?) you might want to make your pearl necklace out of affordable but lovely freshwater pearls. They won't break the bank, and their not-quite-perfectly-round-ness coordinates well with crochet stitches worked in wire, which can also have a charming but not-quite-perfectly-even quality.
I was so enthralled with this idea that I actually crocheted this design twice, changing out the wire colors to see which one would turn out nicer. I love them both.
If this is an idea you'd like to explore further, I invite you to check out my free pattern for a freshwater pearl wire crochet necklace. I hope you'll enjoy it!
