Denim Beaded Necklace

Okay, this one is also not actually embroidery. Although, if I stitched the beads with embroidery thread does that count???
I have had this one on my mind for days now, it has been begging to be made into something concrete. Finally I was able to do this today. I made beads from old jeans and gold toned crafting wire ( 24 gauge, I believe ). I cut pieces of wire, looped the ends, wrapped denim around the wire and sewed it on. The more I did, the faster and easier it became and before I knew it, I had 21 beads. Alternating with blue glass beads, I made an entire statement necklace from them.

When I showed this to the family, all of them said "What is this? It looks like denim? It is so cool!!!"
Oh, how I love compliments and validation <3
