Crocheted Crystal Necklaces

Does anyone else have a “pretty rocks” collection? No? Just me, then.

Well, I had a couple of tumbled crystals I picked up in some gift shop for a cave tour or something, just sitting in a box on the shelf…

So I made a necklace!

(Ok, I made like 7 of them.)

Pretty quick, start to finish, and they look pretty nice.

  • With standard crochet thread, B/1-2.25MM hook:
  • Chain 3, slip stitch into third chain from hook chain. This begins a kind of basket to hold your pendant.
  • Chain 3, slip stitch onto the “basket” around the chain loop, working in a spiral. Don’t increase as you go around.
  • Grab your rock when you’ve made a loose net big enough to almost hold it.
  • To close your “basket”, slip stitch your loops tightly so that the stretch of your  is snug enough around the rock to bind your pendant securely.
  • Chain as long as you want the necklace to be. A handy chart on standard necklace lengths (in inches, sorry rest of the world, I’m American,) can be found here.
  • Join the end of your lovely necklace chain with a slip stitch at the base of the pendant.
  • Slide a bead on there for a finishing touch, or add a tassel, and voila!
