The friend who asked for the black and grey necklace a little while ago was so pleased with it that she asked me to make another one the same and a second one in a different colour.

I was able to get some more of the large black and white beads and make something very similar to the original, just slightly shorter.

She was intending to auction them at an event to raise money for a children’s charity. So for the other one I decided to go neutral in colour, thinking that might appeal to more people.

This one would be my favourite, I think.

A colleague came to work wearing a floral blue and pink top today and to go with it she was wearing the necklace I made for her a few years ago.

I had quite forgotten about this necklace.  I made it when I was going through a phase of making double-strand necklaces for everyone!  They’re quick to make and look quite dainty, even though some of the beads are quite large. 

I was pleased that she still wears it and it still looks good today.
