31 Days: Color – Day 27: Yellow Birthday Necklace

I know, my birthday was in September, but I just keep talking about it. I do like to stretch out my birthdays as much as possible.

A few weeks ago, my friend dropped by with a birthday present (a few weeks late if you’re doing the math at home – which is fortunate as I’m sure her birthday present will be a few weeks late this year, too – it’s kind of how we roll these days). She gave me two adorable jars for my workspace, one containing a gift card to Goodwill (who knew?!) and one with a vintage yellow necklace I had loaned her to wear to a wedding over a year ago. She said, “I thought you might need these for a yellow project this month.” It was true, I did.

I’ve been thinking about these beads for a while (pictured above – the necklace on the inside). I have a yellow and sterling silver necklace (made from the beads on the outside in the photo above) that I wear all the time, but I thought a gold one might be nice, too. I didn’t take photos of my process this time, but there were 3 or 4 different variations on what I was trying to do – beads on wire, beads on chain, beads on wire and chain. In the end, attaching the beads directly to the chain was my favorite.

After taking a break, it feels good to be working on my 31 Days projects again. Halloween costumes are put away, my workspace is clear, and I’m ready to finish the goal I set back in September, but at a much slower pace.

  1. I like it! It’s a different style than the other ones you did last month and it works very nicely. How nice to see you finishing the challenge. . . on your terms and without driving yourself nuts.
