This project almost looked as if it would be a Pinterest Project Completion Win . . .
1. I pinned a necklace tutorial I loved.
2. I sat down at a table, with the necessary supplies all ready.
3. I started.
4. Then I lost momentum, for some reason, and said to myself, “Meh, I’m not feelin’ this anymore”.
5. I had some tea. Then I started fiddling with my supplies, dejectedly. Kind of pushing them around, like kids do to unwanted broccoli at dinnertime.
6. Then I had an idea! I could finally use a weirdly odd number of really pretty stones I had hidden away amongst my supplies (mmmmm, stones).
7. No longer super angry at Pinterest and the world, I re-started my project with renewed enthusiasm.
8. Using a simple method of stringing beads onto coated wire and affixing with crimps to the opposite ends of the chain, in lieu of where a necklace would normally be attached to a clasp (I outlined this procedure in this how to string beads post), I created a fun, off-centred necklace.
- Small length of coated wire (perfect for scraps)
- 2 crimps (plus a few spares for angry-making mistakes)
- Length of chain that will fit over your noggin (I salvaged this from another necklace)
- Any beads you like – a good project for random, leftover beads
P.S. No Valentine’s-y happenings here, but I did blog about a food-colouring-free pink icing last week. That’s my contribution. I hope you all have a lovely day!
