Raggy Necklace

I wanted to make a necklace to go with some raggy flip flops that would pull together a summer outfit- which I am still working on.  To start I cut a piece of neclace wire and used some old plastic beads.  I beaded the wire and got this ugly thing.

Then I layed on my long piece of material.  I wrapped the beads and tied a strip of zebra print fabric I cut with my pinker sheers.

Then when I finished I added my clasps. I then wanted to add a center piece so I took one of the washers I did for another necklace and hot glued a pretty cross from a pair of earrings on top of it. 

I used a head pin to attach the center piece by putting a cutting the head off and making a hook with my round nose pliers.
I ended up with this crazy piece of jewelry and once I get all my pieces of my outfit made I will post some pictures of the complete look;-)
I will post raggy flops part 2 tomorrow
