I was thinking all day of what I was going to post about. I’m only 6 days in to my 365 days of posts and I’m already drawing a blank…not a good sign, but then I remembered something I wanted to post about, but couldn’t. I had made a necklace for my BFF, Sara, but just sent it this week so I had to make sure she had gotten it before I posted it. I’m sure that Sara is a loyal follower of my blog and I would never want to spoil the surprise. (We’ll see when Sara actually gets around to posting a comment – she’s a busy girl).
I’m not a jewelry maker. I have no tools, I don’t know the lingo and intricate things seem to frustrate me. However, I saw this necklace online while perusing through Pinterest and I have been wanting to try and make one for months.
I had my doubts, but this was surprisingly easy to make and the only thing you really need besides that supplies for the actual necklace is a needlenose pliers and something to cut wire. I used a splicer because that is all I could find. Sarah Ortega’s step by step tutorial is right here.
Here is the one I made:
The colors symbolize the months that her 3 beautiful babies were born.
