Mermaid Necklace

Screen Shot 2013-12-01 at 2.55.05 PMIt’s been awhile since I’ve made a “mermaid necklace”, (or so my niece calls them). It’s a fun way to use up some of the random beads I have lying around. I think we decided on the name because it reminded us of what a mermaid might collect, sort of flotsam and jetsamy. Basically you weave thin wire back and forth, making loops of beads- attempting all the while to capture that “I made this totally random and yet perfectly spaced”look.

Here’s the finished necklace, I’m hoping to wear it this summer with a teal blue dress. I think it’ll look stunning ;-).
