Long Leopard Necklace

I found these beads on an old belt I has no use for. I usually avoid chunky acrylic beads as they look cheap, but I liked the way these colours worked together. Also where the beads are faceted like crystals, they look a little bit classier.


I threaded this together with some help from Little Man (as some of the beads had large holes) and we both enjoyed ourselves.


I wore it today with a black abaya and shayla and leopard print shoes.

    I knew you would like the shoes. I love it when someone sees me all in black and looks down their nose at me, then the get to the feet and do a double take! Its good to challenge assumptions and perceptions. If we make people think, they might have to question their prejudices. Thats my excuse for wearing heels anyway...

    I never even liked heels before I accepted Islam. I really do like platforms however. I linked Hijabi to an article about how we walk wrong and how it mentioned that two of the worst shoes are running shoes and heels. http://nymag.com/health/features/46213/

    Also, could you email my your email addy @ ummlayth @ gmail.com. I would like to talk to you about the Muslimahs Speak Up Carnival that is coming up insha'Allah.
