We had the pleasure of a visit from Daisy and Co this weekend. As we still have Bear (our son's dog) staying they came up to us on Saturday afternoon. I'm not sure Bear would have been very comfy our car for an hour and a half.
When I last saw my DD she told me that Daisy keeps putting on her necklaces. I have made my DD lots of lovely lampwork glass bead necklaces over the years and she was concerned they might get broken. I offered to make Daisy something suitable for a 2 3/4 year old and that's what I planned to have ready for Daisy's visit yesterday.
I have already made Daisy a silver daisy necklace for when she is older so I needed something "beady".
I had lots of different ideas I knew that it needed to be a long one, 22" to be precise so that it was like Daisy's Mummy's. Also it needed go over her head. I looked a "child" beads like fish, stars etc on Ebay and found some rather nice bright coloured acrylic hearts, which I bought.
I found 3 beads worked well between the pearls
and here it is
Just look what she made

Thanks for your kind visits to me today. I hope you enjoyed your weekend? We finally had some well needed rain overnight. My garden welcomed it as the lawn was getting quite parched. The sunshine is due to return again mid week so it appears that we are still hanging onto summer for the moment.
Bye for now,
