I hate when that happens! Leaves me with little bits and pieces of things scattered all about. So, I started noodling around.
You know noodling. When your mind wanders while your hands are busy, and the two reconnect at a later time.
Anyway, noodling around with needle and thread created these lovely beaded beads out of the crescent remnants.
I wasn’t sure about the pink (not my color, as you well know), but it works. The whole necklace has a red/gold cast to it, which seems very rich. Rich in a Downton Abbey / Manor House way. Velvet and candle light, with a comfy chair in front of the fireplace. Perhaps a glass of port.
