Crochet bead necklaces seem to be all over the place at the moment. Besides being a quite stylish accessory they seem to be super trendy for keeping your little one busy while breastfeeding. So it wasn’t surprising when my friend asked me if I could make one for her. My version is a little bit “chunkier”, which was primarily due to the yarn I still had in my stash.I’m usually not a necklace person but in the end I liked it so much that I made another one for me, especially as they can be worked up really quickly :)

  1. I think I’m on the tipping point. Crochet jewelry comes in two categories: the “what the heck?! why would anyone?!” and the “this is so darn adorable!”. I think I’m leaning more towards the darn adorable now after seeing this. Still don’t know if I could where it though, I don’t really get around to much jewelry.

      Haha you’re funny and so right at the same time! I was first not sure either but I must say that I really like the end product :)

  2. Awww, thank you, your so nice. I think I will actually make this. If I don’t like it I’ll use it as an embellishment on the message board I’m making :)
