This is what people said about the tutorial:

"Fan-friggin-tastic Necklace: Wow, I’ve just finished my first attempt at the necklace and I may never take this necklace off. Ever. My husband said that it is his favourite piece that I’ve created so far. And my 5 yr old scrutinized it carefully, and said that it met with her approval. :) A great tutorial, clear instructions, good photos, clear text. It gave a good understanding of necklace components, encourages planning, and has added techniques to my ‘toolbox’. I was able to make substitutions to suit what I had on hand – the number and size of stones as well as the charms (had none in copper) and beads. I enjoyed working on this piece, and will enjoy receiving compliments too :) Thank you Eni!"
