What I did this weekend
August 22, 2011
Everyone asked me what I did this weekend. I’m not sure why that was a surprise but I just don’t remember getting asked that much before this job.
And today I had such an easy answer. I just pointed to my neck and said… “I made this necklace.”
I got the idea from someone who took a couple of strands of beads and twisted them together and then attached them to ribbon on each side to form a necklace.
For mine I picked up some chain at Baubles and Beads and a matching lobster claw and jump ring.
Then I dug through my bead box and picked out not just seed beads but some citrine, amber, and a few other kinds of stones to mix with my mixed matched golden seed beads.
Everything got strung on a long string of clear plastic thread. Then I threaded the bead string between the two pieces of chain. Then I twisted the strands and tied them off.
I’m very happy with it. I think I’ll make more in different colors.
It was very simple.
You should make one too.
