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...)

that is very nice.  do you just tie it on with an overhand?

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