I saw this beaded dangly necklace in a shop for over 50 euros and I thought...ha! I can make that for 2 euros! and I did. Still, I have to give the person who made the original some credit, hers was beautiful.

It should have consisted of a lot more beaded strings and I really tried not getting bored but it was a bit too fiddly for me with the whole 'beads-not-fitting-over-the needle-eye-and-having-to-force-every-single-one-on-and-my-fingers-now-hurt!' thing.

I used normal DMC floss because that's what I had but the one in the shop had some kind of coated, dark, twine-like lovely thread. I got my gems in a little cheap grab bag at stone shop but her gemstones were bigger... All in all, my effort does not do this project justice but I thought I'd share the vision of opportunities with it anyway and throw it out there to you beaders!!  Wink

(For the record: my boobs are not that big and bulging! I think Mr. Wide-angle is playing a trick with us here...)

yeah basically! They're all tied together individually in different places too so they don't come apart when you untie them.
