How to crochet Shell necklace
This crochet necklace is inspired by the beautiful beaches of Western Australia. I was fortunate enough to have 4 months in Mandurah and Busselton, Western Australia where my husband was working. I picked pippi shells on the beach and decided to turn them into a beach-crochet-shell necklace! Here is a step by step crochet tutorial how you can make your very own crochet shell necklace.
