a little DIY fashion

i'll admit...sometimes, i'm a fickle crafter. i'll buy supplies...and then just not get the necessary inspiration to use them. so they sit, and they wait.

and sometimes, it all works out for the best. i'd had these grey glass beads for at least a month, maybe more....just sitting. and waiting.

so tuesday on a trip to hobby lobby, they had chunky clear beads on sale...so i bought 2 kinds, planning on knotting them on ribbon by themselves.

but then i thought "yo hales, clear and grey will look awesome togehter".

and the result?
this chunky triple strand wonder. the pic is blurry...cuz i was pretty much too lazy to go get my real camera. the ribbon is black and white striped, and i can wear it closer to my neck, or real long!

what do you think? especially for all of...$10.
