After seeing crafty_dame's post [link below] and beautiful necklaces, I knew I had to try it!
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=149526.msg1480309#msg1480309

So I did it yesterday, its not hard at all and produces, really nice results. Plus its something you can pick up and put down. I started it after dropping off my car to get something that was recalled replaced and finished it after I picked up my car. Overall it doesn't take a lot of time, but then again I used pretty dang big beads, no seed beads for me!

Since you string the beads on first I ended up with less "chain" so its a bit tighter around my neck that I prefer, but oh well, the next one will be better! I used black crochet cotton, recycled black and white beads and an old clasp and extender chain off a broken necklace.

On to the pictures!

wow, I'm in awe -- that is so beautiful. Black and white look so good together, don't they? You did a great job with the crocheting, too, it really adds some cool detail.

Really really nice!

It kind of reminds me of christmas lights, but sexy christmas lights. Very pretty, classy necklace.
