A Lariat for MIL's Birthday

This was made as a present for my mother-in-law. I took lots of jewellery to show her on Sunday and she liked the purple lariat I made in March or April. I asked her if she would like one and she specified blacks and pearls as a colour. I really hope she likes it! I wore it this morning (as I always road-test my pieces before giving them away - to make sure that there are no faults) and sold one to a friend! So wearing pieces CAN generate sales!

It is made from a simple rope/spiral stitch which is easy but time-consuming. The beads are size 9 seed beads.
