the mansita necklace, a story

mansita-necklace.jpg

what to do when you find a lovely round, white shell with a hole in the middle? you instruct your better half to find as many as he can fit in his pockets and you take off your hat and fill that, too. you do this because back in june you were reading ciera holzenthal's blog and came upon this guest blog post by allison lehman about making your own necklace using an eye pin.

I thought about writing up a tutorial but allison really did a great job and I haven't taken it off since I whipped it up so it's been hard to photograph other than a selfie in my car last week. and when I say 'whipped it up' I mean that it took 10 minutes.
