Tonight I asked mom to create loops on the egg beads and connect them together for me. I refuse to do this part and I am so glad mom doesn't mind to doing this, otherwise it would never get done. After she did that we looked through all of our gemstones and finally picked out what I wanted in the necklace. Mom was kind of enough to string everything together for me and then I finished it off with a Sterling Silver leaf clasp. I am really happy with the way the final piece turned out. THANK YOU KELLEY FOR YOUR EGG BEADS! This really pulled my vision together. If you haven't been to Kelley's blog you must go and it is Kelley's Bead Studio.

I have two more photos of the necklace on our Flickr site. I didn't want to bore you all to death with multiple images of the necklace.
While mom was constructing this necklace for me (isn't she the bomb!), I was working on my necklace with beads from Juls. Mom and I both received a set of her Tequila Sunrise beads (which are so yummy). Mom finished up her necklace on Monday and I finally got my butt in gear and finished my necklace tonight. I am really happy with the way the necklace turned out.

Enjoy and have a great night!
