I made this necklace earlier this year - I've never worn it though. 1) I do not wear necklaces and 2) the colors are really bright and I simply do not have anything that it would go with (even if I did wear necklaces). There was just something about these beads that felt like they needed to be put together.
Everyone I have shown it to either gets really quiet and moves on to something else or they just kinda stare at it and say oh................that's.....nice. Even MomChops, who usually takes jewelry off my hands with little to no question would not even touch this puppy. And let me tell you that woman can wear some bright/loud/intense colors too (love you just the way you are moms)- but even this is out of her fashion realm. I am not sure what to do with it. It seems sad to leave it all by it's lonesomes when all of the other jewelry has moved on to a happy well rounded home. I really love it though so it just kinda hangs out in the craft room with me and the puppies.
Do you have something you have made that you either hide in a closet or never wear - but at the same time cannot even stand the thought of being without? It's a real pickle for me.
Tomorrow is the TGIF Giveaway. I think I need a new name for it.. after a few Friday's this is going to get outright confusin'
