"peas in a pod" necklace
Today I decided to make myself something. After spending a lot of time making things for others and for our home, I figured it was about time to give myself some love!
I keep seeing these cute bird's nest necklaces everywhere, where you use beads to represent your kids. I wanted to use just two beads to represent the two babies we've lost to miscarriage, so I got a couple of beads out of my stash and got to it. As I was starting the necklace, I realized that the shape of the pendant was more oval-shaped than circle-shaped (probably due to using just two stacked beads), so I thought, hey, let's go with it. So glad I did because I love it! The "peas in a pod" idea works just as well as the bird's nest, I think. It was ridiculously easy and all I had to buy was the wire. This is a good project for using leftover beads, which I always end up with after finishing a piece of jewelry.
Might make a few more to give away as gifts...let me know if you want one! :o)
