20 Inspiring Examples of Glass + Crochet

I love looking at examples of how crochet can be combined with other products to make creative items. I’ve looked at crochet with fabric, denim, paper, stones and driftwood. Today let’s look at crochet with glass! Here are 20 stunning examples of crochet + glass.

Crocheting with Glass

It’s actually possible to take glass, melt it down somehow and use it like yarn to crochet. I don’t know how it’s done because the artists that do it seem to keep that a secret but it’s really cool to see it. A variation I’ve seen, by artist Anna Krystyna Casey, is to immerse crochet fabric into glass.

Glass + Crochet Jewelry and Accessories

You can crochet around glass, including sea glass, to create unique, beautiful jewelry. There are also glass beads available that can be incorporated into crochet jewelry designs.
