Material and Tools


Crocheting yarn, a Big Eye needle or a stringing needle with a fine thread loop, a 1 mm hook, scissor, metal parts, a needle and thread




Step 1

The total length of the necklace is about 45 cm. First string the seed beads onto the crocheting yarn in the following order: 60 cm of R10a, then 160 cm of 1x R10a, 1x T and then 60 cm of R10a.
Fig. no. 1.


Step 2

Create the starting loop. Keep it relatively big, as you will later use it to connect the seed beads into a circle. Count off 6 seed beads and crochet a chain with the seed beads. Move one seed bead as close as possible to the hook and then catch the yarn behind it and crochet the first loop with a seed bead. Repeat the procedure 5 more times so that you have created 6 loops with 6 seed beads (fig. nos. 2a - 2b).

Step 3

Further thread the hook through the initial loop and pull the yarn through both loops at once (fig. nos. 3a - 3b). Then poke the hook into the loop to the left of the first seed bead, twist the seed bead downwards and to the right, move the next seed bead as near as possible, catch the yarn with the hook and crochet a slip stitch (pull the yarn through both the loops simultaneously), (fig. no. 3c). Add the seed beads to the second row (fig. no. 3d).

Step 4

Crochet slip stitches with the seed beads in a spiral. You have proceeded correctly, if all the seed beads in all the rows have their holes turned in the direction of crocheting (upwards) (fig. no. 4a). Keep crocheting until you have used up all the seed beads (fig. no. 4b).

Step 5

Take the long thread, tie it to the central section of the necklace and sew it through the free hole of a Twin while adding R10a and R10b (fig. nos. 5a - 5b). Proceed in the same way with all the Twins.

Step 6

Hide the remainder of the yarn inside the tube (fig. no. 6a). Hide the ends of the tube in caps using eye pins (sew the eye pin to the end of the tube using the remainder of the yarn) (fig. no. 6b). Then attach any type of costume jewelry fastening and everything is finished (fig. nos. 6c - 6d).
