Necklace

Strips of linen - folded from both sides to the middle
and rolled up firmly -
a commercial braid - square beads,
a collection of small beads and seed beads.
 
a pin to keep it rollled up
 
I used the beads of an old necklace which I didn't like anymore.
Suddenly I had a nice boxful of beads and a good choice.
 

 

I tried everything - undid - joined again

 

used my square beads

 

and made a necklace.

I had the fun of stitching the toggles.
