Beaded Beauties....no not bearded!!


Hello again.
Well the challenge over at ThisThursday is to create something using beads under the title 'Beaded Beauties'. I racked my brains as I've already done lots of beaded cards and wanted to try something different. Before I left Gib I had started making earrings and bracelets but not got round to a necklace...so here's my first attempt...ever!!
I really had fun making it...but hubby is not impressed with millions of beads all over the house!! Well I couldn't make up my mind which ones to use!! LOL!
A big thanks to all the girls over at ThisThursday for taking me out of my comfort zone!

I'd also like to send lots of birthday hugs to my dear friend Bev. Hope you had a lovely day babe.x

Lovely necklace, and so quick. I haven't thought what to do but I am not well at present so may not get to it but I do have a lot of beads and jewellery stuff in a drawer, I used to make it years ago and with subs gifts and yearning I have collected some bead collections that really should be used!

Like your CD too.
