What was your inspiration?
A customer brought me her favorite shirt - white background with black swirls and a touch of lime green. She asked me to make a necklace to bring out the green. Just happened to have the perfect beads on hand.
What are you most proud of?
I wore the necklace the day after I finished it. While shopping at Coldwater Creek, a clek admired it and asked for my business card! I do get inspiration from their catalog and Chico's.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Keep moving the beads around until it feel just right!
