I'm still trying to put together a project for today as part of my personal challenge of a project a day.  Which today is looking like a stupid idea.  So today I decided to post a project from April.  My niece got married and I made all the women in our family a necklace, (at least those that attended the wedding).  So I thought I would post the brides necklace.  It took three of us to work out the design.  If you are interested in more details here is a link to my blog, http://ravingsofamadcrafter.blogspot.com/2012/05/wedding-jewelry.html

Here are the pictures from the wedding. 







Thanks for looking!  I appreciate any comments.

Ooh, that's really pretty.  And what a lovely idea to make all the ladies in your family necklaces, that's really sweet.

Thank you for the compliments.  I had bought over a thousand crystal pearls for the brides maids and then they didn't want brides maids.  It was actually better that way because who wants matching necklaces?  So I got to make us all different styles and colors.  Which was more fun for me.  What is cool about the brides necklace is that the pin is removable and she can trade it out with other pins.  My sister helped with figuring out how to work the pin.  She also strung all the beads the first time through.  That necklace was restrung 4 times until it was perfect.  Definitely a work of love.

Beautiful necklace.  I love the removable pin, since you could then dress the necklace up or down depending on the pin you wore with it.  I think it would look great with a fancy bird pin!

Thank you!  It is fun that the pin is removable.  I was worried at first it would move to much but it works perfectly.  Actually I made a prettier necklace for the brides sister for the wedding but the pictures didn't come out.  Good thing I still have close to 700 crystal pearls leftover, so I can remake one for me.
