Statement Necklace

After seeing about forty billion "statement necklaces" this spring (if what we've been having in these parts could be called spring...), I decided to make one for myself.

I've had these sparkly blue beads kicking around since I was in high school, if you can imagine back that far. They belonged to my great aunt, who passed all her jewellery onto my mother. I inherited all the costume stuff, including a string of these beads, and have been trying different things with them ever since.

Now that I seem to be back in the swing of things blog-wise, I'm going to try to kick it up a notch and start including photo tutorials with these crafts. It's all very well for me to post pictures of my projects, but if I'm not posting a how-to for the odd newbie crafter out there who might stumble across my little blog and want to try something simple, what good am I to anyone? I think we all know by now that if I can make something like this, so can your pet gorilla. All he needs is a little instruction.

Stay tuned for some life-changing tutorials, and have a great weekend!

I've never heard the term "statement necklace" before but I'm such a fuddy-duddy about fashion, I'm not surprised. My pet gorilla knew immediately what it is, of course.

I like your necklace, it's pretty and the beads are (almost) my favorite color! But I have never heard of a "statement" necklace, either.

Are you making a statement with this necklace? What could it be? That it is gorgeous? I love the blue beads and the fact that they have sentimental value just makes it that much bigger statement! Hope you have a good week!
