Beads continued to be a part of fashion in the western society of the early 20th century. The Victorians and Edwardians used elaborately made beaded jewelry as adornment as well as luxurious garments embroidered with beads. Portraits of Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth are evidence of the popularity of beaded stringed jewelry and beaded garments during that era. Even the unconventional Flappers in the 1920s used beads as fashion accessories.
In this step, remember to close the chain into the circle. Insert the crochet hook into the first and the last lp, and draw the wire through both of these lps. This will make another lp (a slip-stitch) which will remain on the hook.
These clasps are designed for multi-strand pieces, and consist of a hollow tube and a bar that can pass through the tube. To close the clasp, one has to pass the bar through the entire length of the tube. Also known as slide lock clasp, this is commonly used in bracelets that are designed with two or more strands, and is easy to operate. You'll also find some varieties of the clasp that have the tube divided into five parts, with two parts of it attached to one end and the other three parts attached to the other. Tube/bar clasps are secure enough to support multi-strand pieces, but there's always the possibility of the bar slipping out.
When it comes to a strapless neckline, there is a wider choice of wearing costume jewelry. A bolder strand of pearls, or a drop pearl pendent will add glamour, making you feel like a celebrity. Leaving your neckline free, and just wearing drop pearl earrings can make a statement of fashion, with a wide wristband of gleaming pearls or gems.
