Ladybug Necklace with Jade and Agate Beads

I couldn't sleep last night, so from 1 am until 6 am I worked on some popup cards with my Cricut and I made a new Ladybug necklace. Now if you know me at all, you know I absolutely love ladybugs. I got my first ladybug stuffed animal when I was 1 1/2 years old. She has been through many surgeries, our dogs got a hold of her more than once. She's lost all of her fur and one eye. But I still have her. She is probably my most prized possession. In fact, here's her picture:

We've been through a lot together. We've moved 25 times in our life and she's made it through every single one. She was with me when I had my tonsils out. I used to use her for a pillow. She was actually given to my mother, but I grabbed onto her and wouldn't let loose. So...long story short, possession is 9/10 of the law.

In honor of Ladybug, I made this necklace:

Long live Ladybug!

I had one stuffed animal for a long time, it was a dog. He was all brown with a black nose and black felt dots for eyes. I can't remember when I got rid of him. His name was Snoopy.

I think it's AMAZING you still have your ladybug!

Love the necklace and long live the ladybug!

Thanks, Yes, Ladybug and I have been through many ups and downs through the years and she has caught many of my tears. She was someone I could always talk to and not get in trouble. I just love my Ladybug!
