I can't get it off my mind...

It first started with Johanna, in her spare time, finding unique and different ways of disassembling my favorite necklaces.

Like this one I've had since college and wore on most days (including engagement shots...)

This one that made me feel like Wilma from the the Flintstones, given to me by Christina.  And the list continues...

But then I started looking into this, this and this, and wondered, could I try something like it?  Despite Bobby's return last night, part of me wanted to veg on the couch with a cookbook, and the other part of me wanted to at least try this...

I experimented with threading strips of fabric together to resemble a flower--mine are pretty loose, but they work.  Hot glued the flowers together, and found some  fancy buttons to hot glue.

Now I'm stuck with the chain/ribbon part.   I'm still working on how to actually wear the thing.  It's a beginning, though, and enough to leave me thinking about it all through the night and now, wee hours of the morning.

I feel a trip to Michaels is in my future.  I'll keep you up on the final product.
