There's an art to crocheting with wire. Even if you're really good at wire crochet, each stitch could potentially turn out to be a little different from the next. That's one reason freshwater pearls work so well with the technique; each freshwater pearl is its own unique treasure, and, like your stitches themselves, no two are precisely alike.
This beautiful necklace is one of the many pieces you can make using the wire crochet technique. You can feel free to substitute materials, and if you do, the results will be delightfully different each time.
This necklace is a fantastic example of the results you might get if you substitute materials in the freshwater pearl necklace pattern linked above. Both pieces are really similar in design, but the look is totally different due to the differences in materials and colors. The beads reflect light differently, and they even feel different.
Dichroic glass pendants are the unique expressions of the glass artists who create them. They're a wonderful choice for pairing with crochet, especially bead crochet. This necklace is an example of one way that glass and crochet can create a one-of-a-kind fashion statement.
These fabric necklaces are crocheted using the oh-so-simple chain stitch; they are accented with gorgeous handmade glass pendants. I bought my pendants on ebay, but if you decide you'd like to try making your own, I include resources and links directing you to free tutorials for that in addition to the free pattern and tutorial for making the necklace itself.
If you'd like to crochet some unique and distinctive jewelry, this bracelet is a great piece to consider working on. It's easy to personalize this design with different colors and stones. I made my sample bracelet using red coral bead chips and glass seed beads, but there are many possible color combinations you could use.
You'll crochet this necklace using metallic floss and seed beads; then finish it off with a sparkly dichroic glass pendant, or the pendant of your choice.
