okay, so, ive been working on this on and off all summer.  I saw a necklace in an issue of elle and decided i needed a project. each bead is on its own pin. at the end of the first day, i had a red hole in the middle of my hand from the pliers digging into it. all in all, i had to make (let me count, i havent yet...) 139 beaded pins. im glad i didnt think about that before i started. but now its done, and im super proud. i may start one in real gold and cultured pearls now, if i have the stamina and the will to finish it in the next two weeks, before school starts again (denial...). well, enjoy, and let me know what you think!


the magazine original. if i can find the issue, i can look in the shopping guide to see how much they sell it for.


yes, yes, i know theyre meant for making clothes, but she can model my jewelry too.


excuse the super-dirty bead box; i dont own coasters.


mon sexy neck.

xoxo

That is beautiful! I love green, and never really think about working with pearls. Don't take this wrong, but you do have a nice neck. Cheesy

Wow, what a great job.  It looks exactly like the one in the mag.  I'm not a fan of pearls or green but i love the style.

but now its done, and im super proud. i may start one in real gold and cultured pearls now, if i have the stamina and the will to finish it in the next two weeks, before school starts again (denial...). well, enjoy, and let me know what you think!

You should be very proud of yourself, it sounds like you've put a lot of effort into this.  I definitely think you should make another one, and don't forget to post more pics when you're done  =)  Thankyou for sharing.

Thank you so much! i dont think ive ever gotten so much wonderful feedback so fast!

people that made the original should hire you

hehe, that's what i say, but i'd settle for them not taking legal action that i 'borrowed' their design.

i think im going to start working on the next one soon, so ill definitely post pics as soon as i finish, but it may realistically be two months from now. if anyone wants to try one along with me, i can make a better scan of the original and send it along.

oh, and im glad you like my neck Smiley
