This was supposed to be a cuff bracelet...but when I put it in the oven to bake, something shifted and it wasn't wrist-shaped anymore. So, I added some beading wire on the sides, strung a bunch of seed beads and a few Swarovski crystals, added a toggle clasp and... Voila! A polymer clay crocheted necklace!

Very sticky to work with, so while I started with a hook, I switched to the ever-popular "finger-crochet" method!

Thanks! I don't know if I'll wear it- I guess if I find the perfect thing to wear it with, I might! I've never worn a choker before and this one is about 2" wide (at the clay part- the rest is a single strand of beads). Might take some getting used to!

Yeah if you aren't used to chokers you might not want to wear it.  But you could work up to it by wearing smaller ones until you get used to haveing something around your neck.  (I used to wear a choker every day and I had a bunch, I still like things around my neck but I'm weird like that :p)

Cool! 

Probably a little bit heavy though... if you'd like to try crocheting with much thinner and lighterweight strands of polymer clay, check out the lessons, etc., on this page:

(... click on Weaving, Crocheting, Braiding near the bottom of the list..)

That is so awesome!  Did you have trouble with the clay breaking on you?  It seems like you would...

It would make a beautiful bead to dangle off of a necklace. I love it. AND it's my favorite color.
