So I'm an Ohio State alumni (Go Bucks! ) and we're pretty much all die-hard fans. We wear buckeye necklaces (made out of real buckeyes, ribbon, pony beads, etc.) to show our pride. I wanted a "classy" buckeye necklace that I could wear when I wanted to dress up more than a football jersey.
I made some polymer buckeye beads and got to work on my necklace! I'm going back to Columbus over Labor Day weekend and I can't wait to wear it!!
This is my first necklace with beading like this; I've made one other necklace where I basically attached a big charm to some chain, and added some chain decoration. Now I'm going to be addicted to another craft...
Here's a detail shot of the beads:

And if you're interested in some more beading detail:
If you've never seen one, this is a "real" buckeye necklace (which I made freshman year of college ):
Thanks for looking! Let me know if you have any comments/criticism, since this is a fairly new hobby for me!
