I also wanted to show off the finished necklace and gift box for my daughter. She graduates on Saturday! I am so proud I just can't stand myself LOL. I finished off the necklace with a vermeil "S" clasp. I think it totally compliments the necklace. What do you think?
I also wanted to decorate the box for her gift. I had visions of getting some Egyptian patterned scrapbook paper to cover the box. But after looking all over locally and then online. There is almost NOTHING in the scrapbooking world for what I was looking for. How is that possible? I mean I did find some papers that were almost 20$ for 25 sheets. But that wouldn't get here in time. So I finally found some ribbon and Washi tape on Etsy. After buying both I went with the tape. I love how it looks on the box.
Now it may not look like a big deal to you, but I don't scrapbook and I don't do this kind of thing, (besides beading I am kinda craft challenged lol), so I think it is an awesome looking box. LOL
And finally, here is the finished necklace. Both sides.
I think this is the most proud I have ever been on something I have designed. Mostly because of her, not even what I have done. I am one super proud Mama. I will post pics next week of her reaction to the necklace.
Until then don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out all the leopards over there.
