I’ve been holding onto these beads for months now, almost a year to be exact. I purchased them on this trip to the flea market when I was still pregnant with Hayden and have played around with them off and on a few times now, not quite getting the design or configuration to my liking. They’re gorgeous, very earthy feeling beads from Africa, so I wanted to really make something special out of them.

There’s been a lot of DIYing going on ’round these parts! And for some reason I’ve been stuck on making necklaces. Seriously, we have enough necklaces to fill a whole month of tutorials. And I can’t wait to share what we’ve been cooking up! But first I’d thought I’d share a few (is 31 a few?) of my favorite DIY necklaces. All are amazing and totally doable. Picking which to make first might be harder than a trip to Baskin Robbins. So go ahead and pin this and stay busy all spring!
