Found Time

A canceled violin lesson yesterday and a free afternoon today equals time to finish a few projects. I finally finished a necklace I've been working on for awhile. Here it is:



I got the instructions from my friend, Amanda, at Mandy's Yellow Corner. You can find her original tutorial here. I wore it to a baby shower this morning and got a lot of compliments and maybe a few potential buyers!

I also had a few tatted medallions that didn't turn out the same size as the others so I turned them into hair clips...


...they look perfect with a messy side bun!

I made some new medallions in a few bright colors. I think this yellow medallion would look cute on a peachy orange fabric...


...or a grey fabric.


What do you think?

The "hair pins" are adorable! How did you attach them in your hair? With a bobby pin?

Love the colors for the necklace!
