I stepped in it! Seriously. I am going to be in such trouble!!!
OH OH! It's because I have taken up a new craft...beading!
I've always wanted to bead...but never knew how to start. Well, turns out that a few days ago, I was sick of sitting in the tin can known as my parents house. I called Jamie and begged her to let me come over and enjoy the breeze. Turns out that she offered to help me start making my very first beaded necklace.
So I tried and I tried and I tried and this is what I came up with...
The floor doesn't show off the length of the necklace...so here is another one!
A closer look at the beads...
I did a different pattern when it came closer to the pendent. Here is what I have! What do you think? Good idea? Bad? Jamie gave me four of her special butterfly beads... no idea what they are made of, but they are beautiful!
A closer look on how the main part of the necklace works with the center!
This is how it sits on my neck. The photo doesn't do the color justice, but I think the other ones give you the idea of how beautiful it is!
Isn't it adorable? Now I know nothing about beading except all the beads she had were very pretty and nice. I think the purple is amethyst and the blue beads are seed beads...but that's about it! I'm willing and waiting for anybody out there who can correct me please!
Ever since I made this necklace...I can't take it off! People have said how awesome it looks and now it is "so me!" I love it!
The downside...? It takes forever to make! I thought I was going to die just sitting there beading one seed bead at a time. After a while I figured out how to make it go by faster. Just like anything worth while...it takes time!
Please comment and tell me what you think!
