Necklace Inspiration Compliments of the Internet

Yes, it's true that the internet is possibly the world's greatest time-suck.  I go on it to look at one thing and one hour later I gain consciousness, don't know what I've looked at for the past hour, and can't remember what I got on the computer to look at in the first place.  But fortunately, it has some redeeming qualities too - like on-line shopping, otherwise known as "a new mom's best friend."  And it provides endless sources of inspiration.  Sometimes in unlikely places.  Like when I was perusing Rae's blog, but instead of falling in love with one of her many sewn garments, I fell in love with her necklace and given that I have mastered the art of stringing seed beads with a sleeping infant on my chest, I figured that this was the perfect opportunity to try to make a similar one.


Of course, since I'm a necklace-making-newbie I used the beads left over from the one and only thing that I've ever made and I used all the same techniques as well (you know, since I don't actually know any other techniques). Fortunately, it all seemed to work out in the end and I am now in love with this necklace.  It's certainly not the most practical thing to wear when you have a baby strapped to your chest or a baby who is slowly learning to reach up and grab things, but practicality be damned!

  1. Ooh, it's gorgeous! I know exactly what you mean about the internet-- I love how you described it as "gaining consciousness" because that's exactly what it feels like when you come up for air!
