A new necklace !!!

Just before leaving for our holidays in Lombok (here), I started to crochet a simple edging, following a pattern found on this japanese book....




....But I decided just to crochet one half!

With a 5mm hook and some pink yarn, I began to crochet 210 (plus 3 more) chains. Then I changed the colour (red) and I followed the pattern to reach this result...

...vintage button...



...but I was not so happy... so I decided to collect some hot pink (neon!) thread to sew some beads on later...


....but before all that, I blocked the "necklace to be" with some starch...



Once dried, I choose the beads to sew on : red (plastic) and hot pink (velvety)...


...see the blanket stitch?

...after a couple of hours (more or less!), a new necklace was born....











I like how the beads, because of their weight, give a better shape to the necklace!

Tomorrow I'm going to wear it!!!! ;oD
