This next gift was also for my sister Dani. She wanted a chain and pearl necklace similar to one that we saw at Ann Taylor Loft (I cannot find it on their website or I'd link to it). This is what I came up with. The necklace took a little longer to make than I expected, there were a lot of pearl chain links to make! I didn't mind though since it was a craft I could do while watching TV. That's one of the reasons I love making necklaces...I can do it from the couch. Sadly, my sewing machine can't fit on my lap or I think I'd sew more often!
I actually had cornflower/periwinkle colored ribbons instead of the metal chain attached to this at first, but ultimately decided that the silver chain would be more practical since it would match with more. I might make another one of these with black ribbons attached though--possibly for this Etsy shop I've been considering?
Sorry for the grainy photo, it's hard to take pictures of myself in the mirror and keep the focus right! If I was a good blogger I would have taken a picture of her wearing it, but alas, I'm not that on top of things.
