I started off weaving small gunmetal glass seed beads and beige beading thread. Then as I went along, I added some pretty pink shell discs. After I got the necklace to the length I wanted, I could not decide on how I was going to finish it off. I did not really want to use a clasp because the necklace is long enough to easily go over the head, but I was a bit stumped. This is about the time that I chastise myself for not planning out the project in its entirety once again. Anyway, this brings me back to my Pinterest addiction. I began looking at many different craft tutorials and came across a fabric flower tutorial that had burned edges. It was perfect(Ok so I still made some of my own modifications)! So, I made a special trip to Joann's fabrics and purchased some silver crinkled material, primrose colored tulle, and beige colored tulle. Here is the final result:
My head is spinning with different applications for the singed fabric flowers! It is a perfect way to keep myself busy while being trapped inside the air conditioned house. I am still trying to wrap my head around the idea that people actually survived in this weather before the air conditioner was invented. I really don't know how they did it! Hopefully everyone else out there has found ways to stay cooled off and to those who have been basking in cooler weather ...:} I'm jealous right now.
