Crafty Tuesday

Pin It
Welcome to Crafty Tuesday!  Crafty Tuesday is to share with others your craftiness, either with things you have made (craftiness or baking because that’s crafty too!) little ideas on fun things with the kids or something cute you have found that you would like to make!  Please feel free to link up and take the button in the sidebar on the right hand side!  Thanks!!!

I have still been crocheting a bunch but this weeks Crafty Tuesday I decided to show a necklace I made.  I went to a jewelry show a friend of mine had and the jewelry was gorgeous!  I am just so cheap frugal that I can’t see spending $50 on a necklace that isn’t real!  So… I brought home the catalog they gave us to order from and I looked at the necklace I wanted and decided to make my own.  Now, it’s not exactly the same, I used what beads I had but it looks very close to it. 

Here’s the necklace I wanted, (and just now searched and found for $12 on ebay… hmm… now that I can do!)
villa necklace
and here’s mine…
 001
It only took me about 5 hours to make it.  lol  I used headpins for each one and bent them and then attached it to the next set.  That’s why it took so long!  Now I just need to find a pendant to add to it.  Made it long enough so you can double it.
Jump on in and show us what you’ve been up to!
