So my sister, Elizabeth, called me this weekend and asked me to make a necklace for her sister in law’s wedding… which is in two weeks… yikes! Cara’s (the bride) colors are lime green, teal, and the bridesmaids are wearing black dresses.
These are the shoes and the dress Liz gets to wear. They are SOOOOOOO darling! I wish I could wear heels like this without falling over and breaking my ankle.. or leg… or hip… hehe!
Liz wanted a lime green necklace to go with the outfit so I went shopping and picked up a ton of beads and sat down to play… I had a lot of fun and ended up making a fun twist style necklace.
Here’s what I came up with…
I restrung all the seed beads and tube beads on to tiger wire and connected them all to one jump ring to create a “twist”/wrap effect. I reallly love how it shimmers in real life. There are a few mixed in teal seed beads and they are awesome. Today I went back to the store and picked up more beads to make this necklace for myself.. lol!
The clasp is my favorite part. I love that you will be able to see the clasp because she has short hair.. not as short as mine, but short.
I’ve got to pop this in the mail for here tomorrow am. I hope she loves it!
PS… sometimes you have to go through a few clasps … ergh..
