All new cupcake focal necklace - whoop!

Some time ago I made a lurvely cupcake cane. I made a range of beads from the cane, including this large cupcake focal bead. 

I used this focal up in a necklace, but I really wasn't pleased with the results. 
I liked the spiral rope and fringing but the beaded toggle looked rather ugly and really let the necklace down.

I just couldn't decide what to replace the toggle with so I put this project away and forgot about it until recently...

...when I had the idea of making a button toggle from the cane (glad I had some left) that I used to make the focal bead. 

I think this works sooooo much better and really finishes off the necklace.
