For the first blog post of 2019, I have a few ideas on how to customize my newest crochet necklace pattern, the Venezia Necklace. The first idea I had, is an easy and subtle way to add a little sparkle. The ring links that link the chains to the medallion were crocheted in a silver metallic yarn, and the tassel was also wrapped in the same yarn. The finishing touch was the surface crochet between the second and third rows in the medallion, from the beginning to the end of row, crocheting around the chains in the center as you work across. This version doesn't have to be limited to using a metallic yarn, you could make the same modifications using a different color or colors, for a completely different look!
