This necklace did not take too long to make either. I got the design from the book linked earlier in my blog and think it worked out quite successfully. I didn't like the black and red colour scheme the book had, so chose my own colours and I think they go quite well. The necklace is worn in a lariat style and looks more like a longer choker than an actual necklace. The design is obviously not really called 'squid', but the bead I chose made mine look like one so it has been renamed!
