Transgender Pride Cross Stitch Necklace

The pride rolls on! This time, it was the trans* community’s turn. There are several flags used and endorsed in different trans* communities and I decided to start with the one designed by Monica Helms in 1999.

The nice thing about making a series of these necklaces is that I’ve been able to work on two or three of them at once and keep their various stages in order as I work on them (my ace pride design was finished, cut and glued while I was getting the backing panel and bezel ready for the trans* pride necklace).

I’m really pleased with how these look. I may just keep going and make five or six of each. What do you think?
