picture on Pinterest that is the inspiration for this necklace. To start with I looked through my collection of Clare Gaylard's flamework beads. Then I worked back from there to choose seed beads and make up a threading pattern. Flexibility is important for this kind of necklace, so I used size 20 thread, even though the the circumference is small. It took me longer to crochet than I thought it would but turned out as I visualised, so I'm happy about that.
At one stage the thread with beads strung on it was getting into a tangle. I solved that problem by wrapping the thread around a roll of flannel fabric. Things 'stick' to flannel, but of course they come away without any sort of residue. It worked well.
