A bit of beading

Or should that be crocheting?.....

A crochet wire beaded necklace

This time in black wire with pink & blue beads.

You may remember that I made a few of these necklaces last Xmas as pressies for the girlies in the family. Well they seemed to go down well & my SIL wears hers on a regular basis :-) Nice to know that your work is appreciated :-)

She was wearing it when visiting a family friend who unfortunately has MS. She loved it & asked where she'd got it & I was texted to see if she could commission one with pink & blue beads.

this is the result

think the colours asked for work well together :-)

I made a box for it & lined it with the pink tissue which sets it off nicely.

And decorated the top of the box 

Will put it in the post tomorrow.
