"When I am old I shall wear pearls." Isn't that the saying? No? Well, anyway . . . I wanted to make a necklace with a strand of freshwater pearls I had, so this is what I came up with.
I randomly spaced some gold beads in with the pearls, and then added some wood beads, too. Here's the finished product, worn a couple of different ways.
Karen says you have to punk it up (like with a Bob Dylan tee), since you don't want it to look "old lady". Or, maybe you do. We'll leave that up to you!
