What are you most proud of? I am really proud of being able to make this necklace, and also braiding the leather since I am not very good at braiding. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient. I had to take of the beads and switch them up to find the right color combination and it can get tiresome. Also, glue to beads to the end of the pin, it stops them from sliding up and down and makes it look better. Be sure to use invisible drying glue.
