Jewelry + crafting = bliss.
I found this necklace tutorial over on Little Miss Momma -- isn't it cute? I'm very happy with how mine turned out. The process was time-consuming (cutting a million little circles!) but very simple.
The tutorial calls for using a glue gun for the entire process. However, I wanted a little more trustworthy holding, so I actually reinforced my flowers with hand-stitching. If you'd like details on that, let me know.
My mother-in-law tells me it looks like something from Ann Taylor-- I can only dream to be as chic and fashionable as them! But coming from her, that's saying a lot-- she is always so fashion-forward and lovely. So I'll trust her opinion :-)
I can't wait to make more; possibly in every color of the rainbow! One for each day of the week? Maybe that's going a little too far...
P.S. You should definitely check out Little Miss Momma's blog -- Full of so much inspiration and wonderful ideas! It's one of my favorite reads (As far as blogs go... A post on my favorite book reads is coming soon!)
