Not Your Grandma's Pearl Necklace

I was surfing the web yesterday and ended up on some jewelry pages. I love the new look right now with pearls but I have always felt a bit cheesy for wearing them. I found a few that had a chain element to them. I thought they would be perfect, fancy but not too fancy. So I pulled out my jewelry making kit and made one of my own. The hardest part was deciding what pattern to put it in and I had some other beads to it to give it a younger feel. I have a couple of pictures to show it in a few different lights.

The one below I kinda laughed while I was taking the picture. I was reading that Catalog Life blog where she kinda pokes fun at random items sitting around. So while taking this one I thought. In case I need to leave my necklace just sitting on the lawn at least I know it will look pretty.

I found another necklace on Downeast Basics website that I am going to try to make. It is right here .

Happy CRAFTING!!!!
