Despite some internal conflicts, I finished the necklace. There was the usual drama doing something new. Why am I even attempting this? What if it doesn't look anything like the pros make? How will it hang? And what am I thinking?
After some encouragement, I realized I was doing this, no turning back! As my fashion expert sister has said,
"Fashion isn't wearing what everyone else is wearing, it is doing your own thing, no matter what it is, but with confidence!
(If you could have only seen me at Michael's yesterday in the bead department. I had two different employees trying to help me figure out how you make a necklace--what clasps, thread, closures and such was needed. Caroline helped me kinda make it up as we went--and there was definitely more hot glue usage!)
