Knitted Gemstone and Pearl Necklace
designed by Cynthia Kimura
Skill LevelBeginner
TechniqueKnitting with Beads
Time1-3 hours
Approximate Size28 1/2 Inches

I used a variety of bead shapes to add depth to the knitted portion of this necklace. It breaks up the look of the piece, rather than having everything in strict even rows.

When fishermen cast their nets out into the sea, they never know what treasures they may capture. This necklace captures the beauty of gemstones and pearls in a knitted focal full of warm and elegant colors. The knitted wire keeps the treasures of the sea and earth in place, just like a fisherman's net. Learn how to make this necklace and show off your own beaded treasure.
