A 3-Year-Old's Custom Order :-)

Have you ever had a custom order, that was requested and supervised by  a 3-year-old? Well, my first one was today:-)

I only work with gemstones nowadays, but there are still some other beads at home. My daughter spotted the dyed Mother-of-Pearls love hearts today (where were my eyes when buying?) and asked me to make  a pink necklace with them. I suggested that we also use purple hearts and some glass beads. 

She sat next to me and actively participated in the entire process, and at some point even insisted on adding more colours - like yellow, blue and green. I didn't like the idea at first but we tried it anyway, and it gave the finished piece a nice sun-brushed flair. Here it is:

It turned out quite nice, didn't it? And, of course, my little fashionista had to pair it with her new handmade bag:

Apparently, some child in the kindergarten had a bag with printed candles on it, so she also wanted one. We made it this morning from 2 recycled A4 pieces of paper, on which she drew candles, and some leftover ribbon.
