Introducing Sweet Pea Pods!

A friend of mine sent me a message on Facebook with a picture of wire pea pod necklaces, and wrote, "I saw these today and thought of you. Could you make these?" Upon closer inspection, and with the help of YouTube, the answer was, "YES! I can make these!"

I proceeded to practice occasionally, and got the hang of making them and established my own way of doing it. After all, I can't just copy what others are doing. I always want to put my own twist on things, so to speak. I tried doing different numbers too, as A Nest by Design is known for "pushing the boundaries" of traditional numbers! But I found that for this item, I really need to stick with 2 to 4 pearls. So, I'm sorry that this isn't an item that allows for more personal customization for grandmothers, or for larger families, but I still love making them and think that this is a great thing to offer.

I also feel like these pea pods are fashionable. They don't have to represent anything, really. They are just cute, and the Light Green Swarovski pearl is PERFECT for peas!

So here we are! I'm happy to offer personalized Sweet Pea Pod Necklaces! They are $15, and I can make them with 2-4 pearls. I am also offering them in Sweet Pea Bundles. How cute is it to have matching pea pod necklaces with your BFF(s)?! You can order matching sets of 2 for $20, 3 for $30 or 4 for $40.

So, I ask you...

How many peas are in your pod?
