Have I ever told you that I want to be just like Jess when I grow up? Well I do (even though I'm 99% sure that she's younger than me). She sews like a mad woman, designs amazing dresses for her adorable girls, and made her own version of this cute necklace (original tutorial here).
So in my attempt to be just like Jess, I obviously needed to make one too (we'll just ignore the fact that I've never made any type of jewelry before and spent about a half an hour in the beading aisle at Joanns trying to decipher what everything was - all the while praying that the baby wouldn't wake up and start screaming).
Allow me to present to you my first beaded project ever. And dare I say that I might be just a bit hooked - mostly because stringing beads is one of about three activities that I can do while trapped in a chair with a sleeping baby on my chest (the others being listening to endless hours of NPR and reading book after book after book - you get the point).
