    Oh I love, love, love these colors. I have so many things that would go with it. The color blocks are really interesting as well. Beautiful, Julia.

    So you think it is a good birthday present for a 45 year old very tall woman, who loves chocolate? ;)

    Thank You Del and Kats!
    I am thinking of making another one like it but for the sale. Maybe a bit longer so it could be tied in the knot?

    Ladies , do you think it would be better if I to put one Zwarovski, same as in earrings to the necklace’s toggle? or it is going to be an ‘over kill’?

    Oh, my, oh, my….this is gorgeous! Lucky girlfriend, that she is!
    The pattern is beautiful. I vote ‘yes!’ for the additional crystal by the toggle, but, that’s just me. Love a touch of crystal anywhere.
    A longer length allowing for a knot would be lovely, Julia!

    Thank you, Lois! :)

    Thank You , Becky! :)

    I used 36gm of beads here, so I think 18gm more will give it a knot… ;)

    Thank You, Sonja :) I was thinking to use rustic type of chocolate colored paper for packaging ;) and to attach a truffle to it…
