One of my favorite bead books, The Art of Seed Beading, features a project that uses crochet and beading to create a necklace. I can crochet, and I can bead, but for some reason, this project intimidates me. Years ago, I bought the stuff to make the necklace, but I have yet to give it a whirl. I think it's because all of the beads have to be strung before any crocheting can begin. Plus, you have to make sure that the beads fall to the outside of your work. It's probably no where near as difficult as it sounds.
