The other day I showed a photo of a pink necklace that I really love that was to serve as inspiration for a handmade necklace. Sooo, last night I got busy over a rerun of Glee. As it turns out, I don't have nearly enough beads in my collection to make a necklace like I wanted to! Unless it is to become a technicolor nightmare. I chose a dark green stone with silver colored oval beads and produced a single strand that can be worn alone or layered with other necklaces. I used unbreakable string and simply strung the beads on in a pattern. The string I used was very old synthetic suture material that I had gotten from a now closed veterinary clinic. Since that isn't available to all of us (insert sad face here) there is also great beading string available at any craft store. When I finished, I tied the string and strung the ends through the end bead then cut the string ends.

So, even though I didn't have enought materials to do what I really wanted, this turned out to be a fun project. I guess I have a bead shopping trip in my near future!
