I've lost my scissors... again?!!

Ok, so I don't do much beading.  To be honest I'm afraid I don't have much patience for it, so big respect to all you fantastic jewelers on this board.  I thought I'd offer my humble contribution since I'm proud I managed to finish this simple necklace.  This was my laundromat project of the week (all that time waiting is best spent with a project in hand!).



It's long enough to slip over my head, so it doesn't have a clasp in the back, but I did add a clasp hanging from the center front for the pendant.



Tiny folding scissors!
I am usually sewing, and I'm terrible about clipping my thread ends before I wear something I've made.  These are great for when I'm hand sewing and need to snip threads or cut small pieces, or when I'm out and find one of those pesky uncut thread ends I forgot to snip when I was sewing.

Eventually I'd like to make a pretty chatelaine with clasps to hold little scissors, a needle case, a thimble cage, that sort of thing, but until then this will make me happy

Cheers!
