When you’re looking for a unique piece of jewelry to put all eyes on you, you’ll be glad you have the Shimmer and Shine Necklace pattern from I Like Crochet. Wear this sparkling necklace with its gleaming stone pendant, and you’ll be admired for your exquisite taste as well as your incredible crochet skills.
You’ll create this statement piece with luxurious metallic yarn. Simple stitches form the delicate necklace and the wrap for the cabochon that hangs from it. The polished cabochon is the star, so choose a color you love. You could select a stone that mimics your birthstone, one that’s your favorite color, or simply a stone that makes you happy. It’s your choice!
Work the Shimmer and Shine Necklace pattern in two pieces: the length and the pendant edging. You can adjust the length easily—just keep going until you reach the length you desire. When you’ve finished both pieces, simply glue the cabochon into the edged pendant, let dry, and then sew the pieces together. That’s it! Now you’re ready for a special night out.
