I love lifesavers candy it's so fun Smiley  I've had this bag of beads for a while now but came across a great deal on some big sized jump rings and finally put these beads to use.  It looks slightly off balance as my mannequin isn't really built for displaying jewelry but in real life it's quite awesome (I think anyway)  Smiley  Would love comments and opinions as I don't typically do beaded anything

I love it! Where did you get the beads? I want some. Smiley I love how you took something playful and made it elegant - it drapes quite nicely (despite the mannequin).

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

This is the very first project I comment on =). I love lifesavers also. They're like a party in your mouth and I'm happy to see you've wonderfully mimicked the happiness and joy a roll of lifesavers can bring. Great necklace! Cool Cheesy Grin  Roll Eyes

Thanks everyone Smiley For whomever asked, the beads came from shipwreck beads the most awesome bead store ever and I'm lucky enough to live uber close to them Smiley I have some more tempted to try a few other things with them and see what comes to be.  I had no idea in mind when I sat down and made this it just came together in a way I love even without advance planning Smiley

That necklace looks good enough to eat!!  It reminds me of a necklace I made out of these beads resembling watermelon seeds. 

Anyways great job!  You should make some matching chandelier earrings if you have any leftovers!
