This was so much fun making. Started out making my own beads.  All the beads are handmade, except the small black and brown ones. I enjoy Nature and incorporated it into my design with the tiny bird.  It is strung on ribbon so it can be positioned on your neck, long or short.  I laid out the design in my mind, figured out the amount of actual finished beads I would have and laid it to paper and here it is!  The long cylinder beads are upcycled from window clings that no longer stick to glass.  Great fun project for winter.

Wow, so many different types of beads!  I LOVE the upcycling used in some of them, too.

I think the fact that you made your own beads, plus the little bird cage, makes your necklace really stand out. It is very wearable!
