Candy Necklace

About this design:

I've been making loads of PC rondelles lately...and when I strung them on this braided leather struck me that it looks like those edible candy necklaces we had when we were kids!


Handmade PC rondelles, braided leather cord, copper cord ends and lobster claw clasp.

    What a fun necklace; very original. I can see me wearing this w/jeans or a long skirt (if I ever wore a long skirt). Love it; perfect weekend necklace.

    I guess I never commented on this one. I love your ability to create your own beads plus I love what you do with them. There’s one thing lacking… how about a pair of looooong dangly earrings with rondelles – either just a long string. Or string them on a hoop.
