This was inspired by sublokes "felted rug" project/thread here... Smiley I got very excited by the idea of felted yarn balls, so I tried making some myself from various types of leftover yarn (wool, alpaca, mohair and blends of these)... it was hard work, but I ended up with some balls I was happy with and made this necklace. I hope you like it. It's asymmetrical, meaning I've strung the beads from smallest to biggest, and the closure is on the side.

Thanks Salihan - the buttons really balance out the rest of the necklace. One on its own looked a little... odd  Wink

I agree with everyone else that I really like your colour combination.  Also, how does the closure work?  Is it just a loop in your string that loops around the last button?  The button closure is really cute.
