I recently bought some beads at my local shop with the intention of making myself a necklace. On my birthday I decided what better way to start the day than being creative. (Really, that the best way to start any day but sometime getting to work on time gets in the way.....) I put together this birthday necklace. It's about 18 inches long and will look great with some turquoise accessories I have for summer. Such a great feeling to be crafty!
