Another Friday evening project

Me again!! Here I go with another piece of jewelry to wear...and this one's a BIG ONE! I actually wear quite a bit of black over brown (what can I say....it's a thinning color and I need all the help I can get!) so I wanted something to wear matchy matchy. Here's what 3 hours of work netted me..



Hard to imagine what it looks like on, so this is a picture directly from the instructions I followed :)

Their photography is much better! Plus, I think it's pretty convenient to have a dress form with a neck...which I don't happen to have lying around, imagine that! :)

Anyway, I wouldn't recommend making this necklace...it could have probably been finished in about 1.5 hours, but it was 3 hours of almost an entire headache! The glass beads had to be attached with flat head pins and every time I would turn the pin, the glass would break! UGGH!! AND THEN...attaching each chain to that large enhancer gave me HUGE problems. Ok, I'll just stop there...probably too much information!

Gorgeous necklace...yes. Will I ever do one like this again....?? NO! haha! Have a great weekend!
