Playground Antics

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!! It's DONE! I did it!! I am in love with this new piece. I am going to run out to Old Navy tonight and pick up a bright orange sweater to wear with it. Check it out, this is "Playground Antics". I rolled over at about 6am and was instantly wide awake. I couldn't stop thinking about the bowl of beads I had sitting on the kitchen counter waiting to be cleaned. So I got up, made some coffee, cleaned the beads and set to work. It took about two hours to string. It was worth every minute! This piece is just so cool.

There are 58 beads in the finished design. I love the tinkling sound the beads make when you touch the necklace. The bright colors are just so wild and alive. EEEEEEkkkkkkk! I am still so excited!! Now I wanna make one with purple blue and lime green cording, then a black and white one... plus matching bracelets.

Now I knew you would want to know what it looks like on. So I took a quick modeling shot for you. I used the blur tool in photshop to fuzz out my wet freshly showered hair, the molding around my closet you could see in the background and my wrinkly neck, lol. I so HATE taking pictures of myself!! Grrr....
So, anyway, I just had to show you. Now I need to clean the house and get the kids ready to get the Christmas tree. I'll be back :)

What a playful colorful piece.
I can see what you mean about making more in different colors and matching bracelets would put the ensembles into the WOW factor.
Fantastic job as always!!!!!!
