When I posted my dress for the Squadron Ball, I got so many sweet comments saying I should go ahead with the white. However, the consensus was that I should get a chunky necklace to off-set the bridal tone of the dress. So I decided to make one.
I strung blue and whites beads onto floral wire which I measured into three separate lengths. I then made a little circle of white beads at the top for the ribbon. I attached the three pieces of wire and wrapped white ribbon around the top of the necklace to cover the exposed wire. I tied the ribbon in a knot behind the circle and cut off the bit that still showed. This cost about $9.00 for all the beads, but I got WAY more than I needed. Michaels had a great clearance on beads so I got a bunch for a good deal.
I really like how it turned out and hope that it doesn't fall apart at the ball. I will post pictures this weekend of the entire outfit.
One last thing; My wonderful fabulous chalkboard has a fatal flaw. I have been looking at this thing for weeks. I posted it here. My husband looks at it all the time. How did NO ONE tell me that I put 3 P's in Happier. Lane noticed it last night, and I was mortified. I will post one with the correct spelling after I fix my spelling error.
