So, I went to Michaels and bought some wooden beads and painted them. Problem solved...an inexpensive solution to my chunky necklace problem.
This one I painted to match Brinley's outfit that she wore for her birthday party.
Yep - she's a cutie.
This one was a less chunky (20mm) necklace to go with an outfit I wore for Cady to wear a few months ago. The girl isn't that into jewelry (unless it's Hello Kitty) - so she's only worn the necklace once.
This one's my favorite. It's the first one I made, and it took me the most time.
Hand-painted hearts and dots :)
B likes to accessorize more than the other two did. She likes bows, necklaces, bracelets, and shoes and is getting around to liking headbands and sunglasses.
This one and the skinnier one I made for Cady kind of color coordinate.
Brinley only wore this dress for about fifteen minutes before she got frustrated because she couldn't crawl in it.
They might not be as shiny or fancy as the acrylic beads, but I figure I've saved myself a lot of money :)
