Blown glass cross

I am so in love how this necklace turned out, I need to share with you all!

This is a blown cross with Czech glass beads crocheted beaded necklace.

Beautiful colors that complement each other

I use S-Lon nylon cord on all my crochet necklaces.

I thought the beads and the cross on black nylon cord were the perfect combination.

  • Dawn, that’s wonderful to hear! Thank you. I find that bead crochet can also be very calming and almost meditative.

    Marianne said the word that popped in my head as soon as I saw the photo…STUNNING! I love this piece Denise. I had not thought of using S-Lon to crochet with and have hung on to mine for kumihimo projects. You inspired me to get out this lovely cord and give it a try. Thank you for sharing.
