Some of you probably know that feeling when you know that you are going out ,you open up closet to pick your clothes and you scream... I have nothing to where!!!!!
That happened to me last weekend, I didn't feel like sawing so I decided to mack myself a necklace.
 I used long black glass tubes black and crystals and different sort of black plastic beads for part that goes around the neck.
I hope you like it.

Yes, I like it!!! It make me think of bird Phoenix, in a kind of weird way... Anyway, this piece are royal, so elegant and dramatic. *likeyliekey*

HardCandy63... "olenka" is not a common name, here in Sweden. I belive you think og "Inga" right? Wink Cheesy But right now its not very popular to name the kids Inga, so there are most old ladies left with that name today. Cheesy Small girls are named, like Clara, Linna, Emma, Ronja, Tova, Moa... Tongue Smiley

I'm not Swedish I'm from Poland, my name is short cut from Alexandra but nobody knows why.
That is so cool that people name they doters Ronja, when I was a child my mother red to me and my brother books by Astrid Lindgren and names of children in then seamed always so magical. Now tell me Mynta if their are girls named Ronja is there a place called Bullerbyn??

This tutorial is not going to be a master piece of tutorial macking but it should give you an idea of technique.

1you start with one fishing line and macking a "curwed leader" from tube beads and crystals.

2 you string biggere beads on blue end of string.
3 add biger crystals with red end of string and then string plastic beads like in step 2
4 now it is part that is hard to see in the picture you go through small crystals again with second piece of fishing line (green color) while doing that you add seed beads betwine crystals. Piece of fishing line shown as green should go through plastic beds to.

Sorry if it is confusing but English gets complicated when you have to explain somethin. Good lack.

No, I dont think there is a place called Bullerbyn here in Sweden, but the village really exist! Cheesy Astrid grow up there, when she was a kid.
Its called Sevestorp.

Have you read about Emil in Lnneberga, Katthult? Lneberga and Katthult really exist... Cheesy
