Didymos Blanket Reveal, Part 2

To read Part 1, Click Here.SONY DSC I know,  I know,  no action shots of the blanket yet.  I'm waiting for the sun to come out so I can get some really great ones. It could be a long wait, but I'm optimistic for this afternoon. In the meantime I'd like to show you another little accessory that I put together to go with my blanket.  This necklace came from a cheap thrifted rock chip necklace on a plastic cord. Terrible blogger that I am, I forgot to take a before shot. Oops.  It was mostly dark blue and black chips and the cord had been heated and cooled too many times and was stuck in a very unbecoming shape.  So I dug my beading box out from under a pile of yarn (where do you keep yours?) and set to work cutting the old necklace apart and sorting the chips out into pools of color.  I don't know if any of you were the type of kid who sorted their crayons and colored pencils into rainbows whenever you had the chance, but I certainly was so this actvity really made me feel like a kid again! I gleefully sorted and played with these beads for over an  hour until I came up with something that reminded me of my Didymos wrap.  I haven't found just the right clasp for it yet (trip to the craft store anyone?) but I hope to today.  I love the colors and the length.  It hits me just around the collar bone, which is shorter than my amazing Starlight Amber by Gabba necklace that I wear almost daily so I think I can wear both!  I think it's the perfect mama bling to match the blanket.  And the best part of all? It cost me practically nothing!  Upcycle win.
