The necklace was originally made last year to match the bracelet (Blue Bonnet) I designed as my Designer of the Year project for April-May 2013 issue of Beadwork magazine.
This was one of the projects I really enjoyed working on, because ideas for other designs kept popping in my mind while I was working on the first version... The other versions make a delicate necklace that can fit a young woman...And I think this necklace is perfect for the coming Spring, don't you?
In the instructions for this necklace I included directions for the other 3 design options and for beading matching earrings. The tutorial is available in both my Etsy and Artfire shops.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my loyal followers & customers who sent me wonderful messages and emails, telling me how they love my work and how happy they are that I'm being one of the Designer of the Year of Beadwork magazine. Your support and encouragement means a lot to me!, and it helps me keep sharing my jewelry designs with others, although there were so many times that I wanted to stop doing it and just bead for myself (I'll write about why in one of my next blogs). And many thanks also to everyone who showed me their work made from my patterns.
Thank you, thank you all so much!!!
