To fasten the necklace, I made a loop and used a button that I had in my stash.
I bought some blue dagger beads also. I am trying to decide whether or not to make a blue version of this necklace or try something different. But, I am pleased with this result of my first foray into beading. It is not something I will do much of, but it is nice to be able to make something so unique for yourself, and out of beads that come from my husband's father's country.
