I’m still enjoying my Darn Good Beads kits from Darn Good Yarn. This month we got a variety of rustic beads with a project idea for a necklace. 

I decided to go my own way by choosing four of my favorite beads from the kit and mixing them with beads from my stash. 

I used two of these large black striped hourglass beads and a large and medium yellow round. I added black and yellow striped bicones, black and gold twisties and these small yellow bullseye beads from my stash. 

I think it turned out great! I like black and yellow together, and think I’ve avoided the bumblebee situation here. I look forward to using more of my Darn Good Beads from this kit in other projects.
