New Project

I’m beginning a new project. I found three old scatter pins, an elephant, a giraffe, and a zebra and I immediately thought about the Big Top and a traveling circus. I started gathering my yellow, orange and red beads; adding a little gold for glitz and some green and purple for contrast. And I’m on my way!

I had a blast working on this project for Becca T.

Truffle and Apple Red.

All of the necklaces are Princess length, 16 inches. And each has a 1-1/2 inch chain so that the necklace can be adjusted up to 17-1/2 inches.
