During this past week, whenever I had a minute, I rearranged these glass beads in my bead tray.
The focal beads helped me with my colour choices. I have had this set for so long that I was determined to finally attach them to something.

The necklace came together and I was a little surprised by my colour palette. I wasn't sure if the beads inspired me or if the idea was in my head.

But when I went outside to photograph the necklace I realized that perhaps the inspiration was subconscious.

The necklace colours are an exact duplicate to my new chair pillows. I sat in these chairs several times this past week waiting for the puppy to come inside. I think their colour palette accidentally seeped into my subconscious.

The necklace is done. The chairs look great. Sunday is here!
