Do you ever have one of those ideas that you can't believe you had not thought of it sooner?
Here is mine... the Straw Necklace!
This box of wonderful colored straws was under 2.00!
I cut the straws into 1" lengths (+/- a 1/4")
Mix it with a few beads from your existing bead stash or
re-purpose beads from a broken/unworn necklace.
I used cross stitch floss for the cording & just starting stringing the gold beads with the straw beads.
I decided to go with multiple strands for this first ones.
