Pretty in Pink.

Today My Creative Space has been mostly pink.

Last week I was asked if I could make a necklace to match a lovely outfit which will be worn to a wedding next month. I love a challenge like this. First we rooted around my bead boxes and found some that were nearly right, but not quite.
Then we looked around for anything that matched the feature colour of pink.

On Tuesday I headed off to my favourite bead shop armed with a pink nail file,
An old copy of Womans Weekly

And a reel of pink craft wire

 Of course it would have been a lot easier if I had just borrowed my customers jacket and taken it to Perth with me, but it was having some alterations done elsewhere.
Anyway, I was able to find some lovely beads and have been putting together a few options today.
Apart from length and shade of pink the only other consideration was that the necklace would be worn with pearl ear rings.

Hopefully one of these will be just perfect.

I'm off to take a look at some other Creative Spaces now at kootoyoo

It's a lucky customer that gets not one but four necklaces made for her to choose from! I'm sure there's one there that will fit the bill!

I love that bead shop too. I can't go in there without spending an absolute fortune!

Glad your customer was happy!
