I loved making this necklace as well as now wearing the finished product! All of the silver beads make me feel rich, which I am NOT, and elegant, preparing to go to some party on an upper floor in New York City :D The necklace was easy to make, just followed the directions - you''''ll hear that over and over again from me! But, it gets the job done for me! Make one and enjoy your fantasy :D
