Fan-bloody-tastic  Grin Grin Grin Crafty_Dame indeed! I love them all I think my favourites are the one you made for you Mum and the one for PinkyK, but that doesn't mean the others aren't gorgeous too!
I think this will be added to my long list of things to try  Grin and my list of things I want.
Beautiful.

Adding to the kudos.  OH MY - each one is beautiful, special in it's own way.  Joyful color combos, great themes.  Just gorgeous.

Sorry in advance for the totally novice question, but...

I cannot figure out how to get the beads onto the cotton.  The "end" of the cotton is at the end of the chain, so there is no actual end by the hook to thread a bead onto.  Are you threading a loop of cotton through the bead?  I'm a total visual learner, so am at a loss here.

THank you for sharing your beautiful necklaces.  I LOVE them and hope to get this figured out to (1) use of my bead stash from a previous never finished project, and (2) make gifts for my bazillion sisters in law for Christmas!  Wink

You have to string all the beads on before you start doing any crocheting.

http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa030197.htm has some good instructions for how to work the beads themselves into it.

did you use crochet thread to make these or cotton or ?? also did you just chain one huge string or several seperate ones and then tie them to rings? i'm also confused on how to get a bead on each seperate chain...i guess if i tried it i could figure it out maybe...

i used crochet cotton thread. you could really use any weight you wanted, as long as the beads you choose will thread on it.

i normally just chain one long string, and then add the rings later. for the mermaid/sea inspired one i made teapotdnky, i made each chain seperately and then knotted them together, because i couldn't use the rings.

as for how to work the beads into the chain, andi_sunrider posted a good link a few comments back http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa030197.htm
but really, it's so easy to do, just try it and you'll be all "wow! that's so easy! why do they make it sound so complicated?"  Wink
