A birthday Gift

For Jacci at work - she is a very generous present giver and Im afraid I cannot afford to keep up with her money wise. As she was responsible for starting me crafting in the first place I have been making her gifts which she has been loving.
This little box is a K&Co kit box I have just made it up and added the ribbon. the real gift is inside! whilst at Graphicus the other week we watched a fab demo using the melt pot and some of Tims ornate frames. of course I had to have them along with the pearl UTEE to have a go.

Here is the finished necklace - the bead at the bottom was also made with the pearl UTEE and then heirloom gold perfect pearls swished into the pattern. I had a little help from Michelle with this as I run for the hills with regard to beading it just does not come natural to me at all. I very much like the look and will have another go to make one for myself too - In fact I think a lot of people will be getting one of these as a present from me this year LOL!
