Upcycled Beads

I found these fun beads at a second hand store and made a lanyard for my shop!
Then made a couple necklaces for myself.
This can also be doubled up and worn short. I received a compliment from a stranger my first time wearing this necklace due to the color!
The red is very festive for the holidays but will be fun in the summer too!
I am in love with how these huge beads lay around the neck when doubled. 
 The rare, dreaded selfie of me.

This is a hair update too. I am a bit salt and pepper but am still more pepper than I thought I would be after transitioning to my 100% natural hair.

I hope you enjoyed my new pieces. I intend on playing around with some of the red beads for holiday crafting too.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a great week! ~Val
