She sent me a little sliver of fabric she was using for her Easter dress. She told me to just decide myself what would look good in a necklace.
That is NOT EASY to do.
I HATE to disappoint anyone, and I know that most people wouldn't say, "This is HORRIBLE! WHAT were you thinking!???"
So, I had just gotten seated in the little girl's room at Walmart where I was shopping for the ONE thing on my list, but somehow had a cart overflowing parked outside in the hallway, when my phone rang. It was my sister. She had received the necklace, and she was DELIGHTED with it. She told me it was PERFECT and that it went with several of her outfits.
I was very happy to hear that, of course. It made me want to DASH home and make her another one.
So here are a couple pictures of it. You can see that I JUST HAPPENED to have the exact color of Swarovski crystal in the dark peach stripe. All the other beads are solid black. No stripes in the beads as it appears in the photo. Just shine.
Another video that I made just on the spur-of-the-moment when I decided it might be a helpful tutorial to somebody who is learning to do applique.
