The one thing I need to improve upon is measuring. Mom had the idea of wrapping the seed bead strands around the main string of beads, to make it look like the ruffle of a dress; but I cut the wire too short (I thought I made it long enough). Mom knows my challenge of not measuring and she dealt with the short wires and made the necklace work (we hate stringing seed beads or we would have done a "do over"). Overall I am really happy with how the necklace turned out. This months challenge reinforced how well mom and I work together. Mom is the bomb!
