#DIY #Beaded #Statement #Necklace

I keep seeing beautiful beaded bib necklaces on jewelry sites and Pinterest. I knew I had to have one! They are so easy to make, you can have one in any color you want! This one is for sale in my Etsy shop, if you aren’t inclined to make one yourself. I am making a silver and green one next, I think!
