This is my first attempt at a necklace i used a crochet hook and basically did chains with a 26 gauge wire adding the beads as i went along (I threaded the beads on the wire before i started).
when i started i had full intentions of making each loop even and pretty but as i did the first few loops i didn't like the nice neat look, that's a total lie in fact i couldn't get the tension right LOL but i do actually like the uneven look so just did small loops big loops and went from there.
I made 2 strands with 15 beads on each strand when they were done i simply twisted them together and added a clasp and that's it, i also made a bracelet to match but i need to get a clasp for it, its the same as the bracelet but shorter still with 15 beads on each strand.
The beads look a bit squiffy in the pic i will have to straighten them up
Its not perfect by any means but looks ok on so that's a good start LOL.
