I have shared with you my Picot Necklace, and my Small Shells and Picot Necklace. Today I will be changing up the picot just a bit by adding beads. The beads will act as a fun and elegant “picot” in this crochet Chain and Bead Necklace pattern.
I have instructions in 2 sizes for this necklace, but you are free to make it any length you wish by simply adjusting the number of beads you use.
This fun necklace allows you to get creative with bead colors and thread colors. It is easy to make, and makes a wonderful gift or craft booth item.
