Royalty Necklace for Round Robin
This is the piece I made for my Charmsters group round robin. I quickly decided on royalty as the theme but had been puzzling over what to do with the actual piece for a long time. Finally I just sat down and knocked it out. I was required to do a little re-thinking once I ran out of gunmetal rondelles. Turns out, this is not something you can quickly pick up at your local Michael's! I was also extremely disappointed to find out my favorite bead store is no longer open on Sunday. Luckily I was saved by pack rat ways and I added an extra lenght of chain - I know love the addition of a new metal to change it up.
After my burst of creative energy in the last few weeks, I've been hit with a miserable cold. Here are a few recommendations if you find yourself trapped on the couch or in bed. Keeping Mum is an awesome British black comedy for viewing pleasure. If you're like me and want to soak in the bath for achiness then these books will help pass the time. This is the latest in the series and I loved it! They just get better and better.
