I used a beautiful, sparkly embroidery thread made by anchor that I bought ages ago with no real purpose because it was so pretty.
To make the necklace, I tied the thread to the button I used for the fastening and then threaded all the beads, I wanted to have a variety of sizes and colours of beads so I used lots of different types. There are lots of different glass beads, some I bought in Prague on holiday in 2004, some came from a necklace that broke. There are some fimo beads that I made myself and some shells that came from a broken bracelet. This necklace has been a long time in the making!
