About this design:

These are pieces I created for the Bead Soup Blog Hop.
I can see my cute manatee bead everyday on my fan pull. And I can easily add it to my necklace.
I used 1 bar and 2 toggles for this idea.
If you buy 1 toggle set and several toggle bars,you can make a necklace with interchangeable pendants .
Lots possibles for this easy way to change things up ! m.e. :)
