Beaded Shells Choker
Designed By Julie A. Bolduc
This beaded choker is made by first stringing on all of the beads, then working them in as you stitch, then when you are done, you attach the clasp. It is fairly easy to make. If you are just starting out with crocheting with beads, give this one a try. You can click on the picture to see a larger image.
