DIY Blue Beaded Necklace

I can’t afford to buy all the new flashy costume jewelry necklaces and so I decided to make my own. It is simple and cost efficient, plus I can make as many as what I like and I won’t break the bank. It is time consuming, but totally worth it. I love my necklace and wear it every opportunity I get.

With this idea, you can make a necklace that fits to your wardrobe instead of having to look for a necklace that matches it. image
