About this design:

Mustgoes is usually defined as either the food left from a party that is sent home with guests, or the last meal prepared before a major trip to the grocery store. In this case, I had a handfull of assorted glass beads and a short piece of suede lace sitting there begging to be used. I crocheted a short chain in the center of the of the lace and attached the beads using headpins hammered from 18G copper wire. Then I used the last 2 beads to embellish the hook and eye clasp, also hammered from 18G copper wire.
