Gather your crochet pieces, round ones can be cut in half, if need be. You can always dye the crochet items with Rit or coffee dye them if you don't like the existing color.
For stiffener, I use Stiffy, available at craft stores, and follow the directions on the bottle. It's quite easy to use. You place the crochet item on wax paper, dab the liquid stiffener on it with a foam brush until it's soaked all the way through, then lay it on a fresh piece of wax paper to dry.
Once dry, your crochet piece can be cut to shape it further if you want, and pierced to add jump rings to add the chain necessary for the necklace. Further embellishments can be added with E-6000 glue.
