Today I’m giving away this beaded necklace, in fact, I gave it to someone as a birthday present a couple of days ago. This past Christmas I started giving gifts from my house, instead of buying new stuff. For most birthdays, I’m trying to either make something, give an experience, or give something “vintage” that can find a new home. My friend MaryAnne had a recent birthday and I gave her a makeup bag that I had made for her and embroidered with about 300 french knots. I also gave her this necklace (same colour as the knots) which was something that I made for me about two years ago. I love the colours but it’s not a great length on me and I thought it would suit her better. She’s a great friend and is craft positive, and she really liked both presents – or she’s a really good faker.
Just catching up from being away this weekend.
