thanks again for all the compliments!

Oh cool! I posted a pic of one the ones I've been making in this technique, only mine are more delicate. They end up with about five strands, and a small bead every ten or twelve chains. I use those foldover crimp-type findings on the ends. I never thought about putting the beads so close together or so many strands. How many strands are yours, like ten or twelve, maybe?

i've made a few more delicate ones, but i forgot to take pictures of them before i gave them away. i found that when i did 10-12 chains between beads, they didn't hang right, but that was probably because i was using larger beads.

the black/red one has 12 strands, i don't remember what the blue one had.

This is how I think it's done from her beautiful pics and her description:

thanks for describing it! i wasn't sure what else to say!

i add the jump rings at the end, because i can't be bothered to measure as i go along. i usually do it in front of the tv, and i like it cause it's mindless. i decided adding jump rings along the way was too much work!

here's a close up of the back -

i thread jump rings through stitches at fairly even intervals (not entirely even, cause i want the strands to be slightly different lengths), and then i attach all the jump rings to another jump ring that i attach the clasp to. i'm sure there's a better way, i don't do a lot of jewelery, so i don't have all the right supplies!

Those necklaces are great, I love the 'chunkiness' of them.  I love how something simple (or so you say) looks so intricate.  Good work!

My sentiments exactly!  wisted

I have to put in my two cents - these are gorgeous!  The only bead crochet I've ever done was on bookmarks, and this is definitely inspiration to take it a step further!  My mom loves chunky beaded necklaces, so maybe I'll show her this post and drop some hints about how I'd love to make one, if only I had the beads...  Wink

Absolutely gorgeous, I love them both!  You do really awesome and inspirational work, I am going to have to learn to crochet (and knit, and really it would be cool to do more jewelry, and learn to sew from patterns, and....whew!)  Thanks so much for sharing!

I've been quietly watching this post from the sidelines...but I can't not try to make a necklace like this any longer. They're both just gorgeous. I kept saying I have enough projects going, but they're too chic. Thanks for the inspiration. Cheesy
