Here are pictures of the necklace we made for Pete's mom's birthday.
It's a little tough to see (iphone pictures, sorry) but the inside is filled with a super light blue bead, and the outside beads alternate between pink and black. The hoop is part of super retro, chunky necklace I thrifted a while ago. I also put two pink and two black beads along the chain so it didn't look like I threw the piece on any old chain. Peggy wore it all weekend long and it looks amazing against a black top! It kept slipping under her shirt, so I told her shed have to wear it with a more revealing cut (teehee).
