A sweet and simple necklace fit for a princess.
It was the rainest day out today, so I figured since there was no way I was going outside, it's time to break out the beads and make a cute, and easy, necklace. I originally just started to wing it and had a "Let's just keep going and see what happends" attitude but this necklace turned out really well.

    Cut out a medium length of wire carefully with the pliers, this wire will be used to make the bow.

    Add the beads you want to the two pieces of wire that are sticking out the bottom. I'm adding two blue tube shaped beads on each side, and one heart shaped bead on the end of each piece.

    Cut off the access wire but leave half and inch to an inch of wire at the end. (Use the picture in step 6, I forgot to take a 'before cut' picture =b)

    Thread a beading needle if you want to, it helps me a lot because I always want to get beading projects done really fast =b

    Enjoy your new necklace! You can modify it so that you have a bow ring. You could even just make the bow and hot glue gun it to a ribbon to make a choker, sadly, I didn't have any ribbon on hand.
