Wire Crochet Crystal Necklace

I was watching the Jewellery Maker channel today and watched guest presenter Fleur Hastings make  a nine strand crocheted necklace with gemstones.  Inspired by the demonstration I had a go at making my own version using just three strands of wire, randomly adding glass crystals and then plaiting the three strands together.

The necklace looks long on the display bust but it is only about 16 inches in length and sits nicely on the neckline.

A close up detail shows the variations in bead shape, size and colour.  If you want to have a go at making this yourself, I used a 3.50 (9) sized crochet hook, 0.25 silver coated wire and a selection of beads from Beads Direct.
