Tried my hand at a crocheted necklace. Used plastic cabone rings covered with gold metallic thread and joined with gold jump rings and a flower.

Well as a matter of fact I had no idea what they were until the other day. They are the metal rings used in jewelry making to attach chains and such together.

Thanks for the explanation. I think I would like to make one only a bit bigger to fit over the head and just use all rings...

This one fits over the head and uses about 2" rings with crochet cover, then small jump rings and then the charm to add some accent.

The only problem with jump rings is that the cheap ones tend to pull apart at the lightest tug.
Do you happen to have a fav brand?

Not yet, this is my first experience with them. I do have a friend who has been making jewelry for years so I guess I will ask her what she uses.
