Geometric Patchwork Beaded Crochet Necklace / Geometrik Yama Desen Hapishane işi Kolye

We have an interesting story over here:

Although the technique that is used to create this necklace is known commonly as "bead crochet (rope)" it has a different name in Turkey. The Turkish name of this technique is "prison weaving" -or if we want to make a mot-a-mot translation it should be "prison work". Why it is called as "prison work" or "prison weaving"? Because it is very common for prisoners to create their own crafts by using this technique. They mainly use a piece of matress spring as crochet needle and various kinds of beads as well as cotton rope to make their crafts.

The pattern includes 18 beads in each row and I used 5900 beads to make the whole necklace.

Materials
I used cotton thread which makes the necklace very soft.
The custom casted metal findigns have antique appearances which are complementary to the necklace's color.

Measurements
Total length of the necklace: 48 cm ( 18.9 inches)
Width of the necklace: 4.5 cm (1.77 inches)
