A while ago I posted (and boasted) about some beads I bought at a charity shop and a fellow blogger, Diane, said how nice they were, they were such a bright green.

As Diane lives not far from our holiday cottage in France, I said I would make her a necklace in the lovely beads and take them over.

In the end, I made three necklaces for her to choose from.  Also, in my local bead shop I found matching beads in different shapes and sizes to incorporate into the necklace and some matching earrings.

I was wondering which necklace she would choose.

These two necklaces were essentially the same – one with the large bead in line and the other with it as a pendant.

This is the one that Diane chose.  A double-wire design with less black in it and a generally lighter feel and appearance.

I think it was the one I expected her to choose !!  I hope she really enjoys wearing it – although she may have to wait for St. Patrick’s Day to make the most of it – the beads are really very green.
