The Anatomy of a Necklace: DIY Necklace Tutorial


A few beads, some wire, some organza ribbon, a vibrant color palette...and you have a simply fabulous necklace in a flash.  The anatomy of a necklace a DIY necklace tutorial brought to you by Madge. I call this Folk Art Chic(tm), it's the style of our home and a style I'm finding more and more appealing these days. 



I saw these beads and it all came together in my mind, a little time shuffling it all around on the bead board to make it work, and a design was born.  I'll be wearing this to CHA. When I get back, I'll be whipping up some new designs for the website!
I don't know if I'll have time to check in while I'm away, but I promise to try!

Until we meet again, craft on with your bad selves!
