Lace flower necklace

I seem to be leaving the sewing machine alone a little at the moment, so guess what I have gone back to doing... yup more jewellery.. can never have enough necklaces so I have made yet another...
I pinned the tutorial Ashley (Little Miss Momma) did over at Tatertos & Jello (it's here if you want it too) the other week and decided it had to be made, so with a spare few minutes the other morning I whipped one up with some stash from a recent fabric shop trip.

Look I even tried to copy the bathroom mirror pose too.. this is now my facebook display picture.. yes I'm somewhat of a poser but it never occurred to me to pose in my crafty pics, no idea why... so prepare for more posed pics in the future!

A close up just so you can see the large pearls hidden amongst the lace.

Pretty! I'm going to have to check out that tutorial :) I love to sew too, but sometimes it's nice to take a break and make something quick, like jewelry. Love your necklace!

It is so cute!! I could never wear something like that where I am currently living, in the Caribbean, because I sweat so much that I would ruin it & it wouldn't be pretty :( but I will keep this in mind for future cooler weather!
