A couple of weeks ago I was sent a photo of my granddaughter Katrina, depicting her having a fun little tea party with her stuffed animals. Katrina was wearing a white floppy hat and most of her stuffed animals wore hats as well.
Katrina will turn 5 years old this coming week and it seemed to me like a no brainer that she would love it if I made her a necklace with her tea party as a theme.
I lovingly made each of the 51 lampwork beads in this necklace myself, using the flame of my torch and rods of Italian glass. I made replica's of Katrina's stuffed animals, and a paper doll style little blonde girl starring as Katrina. I used the photo as a reference to copy Katrina's little stuffed animals.
The whole time I was working on making the beads for this necklace, as well as while putting it together, it made my heart sing to be able to give my grandaughter such a fun little gift as this.
This necklace is 20 inches long and strung on cord. I made it long enough that Katrina can just pull it over her head when she wants to take it on and off.
Happy 5th Birthday Katrina! I Love You!
