Felt and wood pig necklace

As I was making all the flowers the past few weeks (see posts Flowers galore- Part1, Part2, Part3 and Part4) I came across the idea to make a mini felt- stuffy necklace for Tina. The first one I made was to express herself during her many "no" and the few "yes" days. Well, I liked it so much that I had to make a few more.
Here is Tina's favorite, the piggy. The necklace is child safe, as a necklace can be. The beads are wood and saliva proof. The felt and the embroidery threads are plant died and the rubber cord prevents choking. Please note, that in the photo I have a magnetic clasp. I re-did the necklace later using a rubber cord that is tied and the knot hidden in one of the beads as I was concerned about the safety of the metal clasp. The magnet is very strong. So aside from the potential choking hazard, OK for children that do not put things in their mouths anymore.
