    I absolutely love this. I remember seeing this necklace on Pinterest and went looking for tutorials a while ago. I just recently became I subscriber and I love your content. Its hard for me to use patterns because they don’t really cater to the plus size. As a beginner sewer your tutorials are very easy to follow. I hope I win the necklace but I also plan on buying the tutorial! I can’t wait to make some for my friends and I. Please keep up the great work!

    This necklace is absolutely stunning. You just can’t beat Ankara fabric in my opinion. Guaranteed to make you shine.

    I love everything about this necklace. Can add a lot to an outfit. I tried one in the past but did not come out this good. I hope I win this one.

    I love following your tutorials on YouTube! I plan to make the Ankara necklace soon. I have the tools but just haven’t set aside the time because I’m always sewing. Loved your fabric room tour—I’m going to go out and get bins to put my supplies like elastic and zippers in—I’ve been using big ziplock bags to put them in but your idea is so much cuter ā¤ļø You rock! I will tag you on Instagram when I finish the necklace šŸ‘šŸ½šŸ‘šŸ½

    First of all let me tell you that you are so talented and inspiring. I love both versions of the necklace. I would slay this necklace with a light or white color tee with a classic blazer, skinny leg jeans, and a complementary heel. The necklace would be a statement piece in it own self, so I would tone everything else down. I can also see myself wearing one of the versions of the necklace with a classic jumpsuit or maxi dress. Keep doing the things that your are doing. I can see the passion and the drive in all that you are doing.
