Gardening Lover's Necklace

Bead Landing Boot Charm

I’m catching up with a couple of girlfriends later this week and always like to bring them a little something. One is an avid gardener so I knew when I saw this little green garden boot charm on sale at Michaels I had to get it for her. There was also a beaded chain in the same section so I picked that up too.  Both are by Bead Landing from their “Derby Chic” collection.

Blue Moon Seed Beads, Bell Pendant Silver Bail
I had some complementary colored seed beeds in my Blue Moon Beads design team supplies, along with a very cool silver bail and bell charm.
Gray Seed Beads, Bell Pendant, Bail
I attached the boot and the charm to the bail along with some silver charms I had in my stash.
Garden Boot Charm Necklace
I took the beaded chain apart at the middle , ran a small length of plain chain through the bail and then attached the beaded chain to either side.
Garden Boot Necklace
Using the seed beads, I strung two sections and attached oval jump rings to each end. Attached these to more plain chain .

I don't think she'll be wearing it while she gardens but I hope it captures her passion.
