My necklace

Here is what I was able to create with my wonderful Bead Soup. I wore it to school today and I received four compliments at various times during the day.~smile~ I used the focal backwards, decided the "wisdom" word would be my secret, I will wear it inward.... I used beads from many thrifted necklaces, love finding necklaces and making new creations with them.

  4. Oh, what a wise necklace! Perhaps it´s better to hide your wisdom, at least most of the time, because the world around you is not always so wise. :D

  9. I like the idea of wearing the wisdom inward, because that's where we carry our wisdom, after all. You found such pretty colors to compliment the pendant, too.
