Here's a great crochet thread bead necklace design idea! Discover a new way to use crochet thread in this gorgeous flower necklace jewelry design idea.

Jewelry Making Techniques


To make the focal flower, I used a simple wire wrapping jewelry making technique.

Jewelry Making Instructions


First, I pre-strung all the beads that I needed, i.e. eight round beads, four glass Murano® beads and one crystal bead onto non-tarnishing silver color wire.

Then, I strung (brought down in turn) each bead and secured it by wrapping, or twisting, it at least twice at the base of the bead.

The same wire jewelry technique was done on the Murano® beads at the top center with the crystal bead being the last bead to be strung and secured it by wrapping at the base of the bead unit.

There are three levels or layers that make up the flower. Four round beads on the bottom, four round beads in the middle layer and four Murano® beads in the top layer.

As for the crochet thread that makes up the necklace portion, I simply twirled two mulit-strand bundles of crochet cotton thread around one another and wrapped the ends of each with 22 gauge tarnish free wire.

I then strung a decorative bead cap onto the wire to cover the thread ends. Next, I strung the white glass bead onto the wire.

In the last step I made a wrapped wire loop on the second end of the wire and attached one half of a toggle clasp to each end of the necklace.

The jewelry making techniques that I used for the earrings are simple wire loops only using head pins and eye pins. It's very easy!:)

Jewelry Making Supplies


The round beads that I used are 14 mm in size and I used 22 gauge non-tarnishing wire. The thread is an ordinary crochet thread.

Jewelry Making Inspiration


This bead jewelry project was inspired by the beauty of nature as I am very fond of flowering plants too.

While loud and dark colors may catch more attention, I decided to use a rather not so loud color combination that was mysterious enough to make the viewer take a second look. What do you think!

Naz,

What ingenuity...This is a great bead jewelry design that shows off your creativity!

I love the use of the crochet cotton fiber to make the necklace portion. And, your wire wrapping is so good that you can barely see the wire that you used to make the beaded flower pendant.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful beaded flower necklace with us!
