I see that I actually did see this necklace last year, but I failed to save the directions unfortunately. I clicked the link to get the pattern and found that this domain registration expired on 10/12/2018. The necklace is simple enough however that I can probably recreate it by just looking at the main picture.

Very nice necklace and very easy directions for anyone to attempt. Howlite are one of the less expensive stones to use. They also have turquoise how lite. That would make another excellent choice. It looks exactly like true turquoise and a third of the cost. I think a matching bracelet would finish off the look.

Very lovely necklace. I love working with Howlite beads. Looks easy enough to do for a beginner. Maybe change up the bead colors a bit. This calls for a girls night in of making this necklace, drinking a bottle of wine or two, and then watching the 50 Shades on streaming video.
