I spent this weekend working on my very own Henry VIII's Wedding Gift Necklace from the latest AntiCraft issue.  It wasn't hard, just time consuming.

Instead of putting all drop beads on the bottom tier of the necklace, I put a blue leaf on every other point, and the green e-beads on the points between them.  I love how it turned out, and now I'm searching for more beading projects to work on.

That is absolutely GORGEOUS.

I would wear it allllllllllllll the time if i made something like that, even if it didn't match.

I love it.  Grin Grin Grin

"Is this a dagger I see before me?" he mumbled.
"Um.  No, my lord.  It's my handkerchief, you see.  You can sort of tell the difference if you look closely.  It doesn't have as many sharp edges."

Thank you!  Grin

I got them from JoAnn.  My local ones are finally getting stock in, so now I can not only go broke on yarn, paper, and fabric, but also on beads.  These came out of the $2 Touch of Glass blue leaf mix packages.
