This necklace is made with 11/0 light and dark green glass seed beads to create a 9-bead-around pattern blending effect. The dark green blends smoothly in light green and vice versa, resulting in a snake-skin effect.
The crochet part is 15 1/5 inches or 39 cm, plus another inch for the metal toggle clasp.
I have made this necklace with a technique called "bead crochet" that consists of stringing the seed beads on a polyesther thread in a pattern and then crocheting a bead in each stitch with a very thin hook. It takes me, on average, 10 hours to make each necklace (2 hours for stringing the beads and 7-8 hours for crocheting).
I personally adapted the bead crochet technique to obtain an oblique effect of the beads in the final result.
A unique gift for your girl friends or your mom!!! See all the other colors or patterns I have made :o) Contact me if you want a specific color or pattern.
