When I posted about spring and summer crochet projects before, I introduced a necklace. This necklace is the same type of necklace, but it's a different color and design. I designed this necklace to resemble red coral.
I like to use crochet thread when I make accessories, because the thread is good for making fine designs. I also like to use large beads, which were placed between ruffles, because I don't need to thread the beads onto the yarn first. I can place the beads whenever I want to add them. However, those beads are more expensive than tiny beads, so I stock up when they are on sale.
This ruffle is called taryn's ruffle. I used the pattern in my last project, summer room shoes, as well. The pattern has large ruffle effect, so the necklace looks solid.
I wanted the rest of the necklace chain simple to show the ruffle pattern effectively. I just placed a thin pink colored bead every 8th single crochet when I was surrounding the wire frame.
