I claimed kittykill for a beaded necklace inspired by this one on her Pinterest http://www.pinterest.com/pin/186336503306765245/ 
I studied it for a bit and decided I could for sure make it!  I asked about color preferences and ordered some beads in candy colors.  I suppose I should have looked at it again before making it since mine turned out a bit differently... 
I have no idea why I though it was a double strand necklace... Would have saved me some frustration if I had only made it one strand! 
Oh well I am VERY pleased with how it turned out and want to make another for myself.



I get nervous about breakage when I make beaded necklaces.  I used clamshells at the end of beading line and some glue at the knots.  To attach the ribbons I used little clamp things and I made sure to tug the ribbons to make sure they weren't loose.  Hopefully it holds up well!
