About this design:

I made this piece with some of the leftover beads from my beads in the mail shipment. I really like the lavenders with the copper. Don't have my laptop back yet, so the pics need work. Editing's not the same on a phone!

Components:

Lavender pearls and crackle glass rounds, peach moonstone rounds, crystal Rondelles, copper chain and hook clasp, leather cord, shell pendant.

    Thanks, Jolene and Asia! I used the leather cord because I couldn’t stand the thought of making more loops or stringing beads on a wire…but I needed to finish ater the piece had been on my mat for a while!

    I think the cord is just right; it works well with the pendant. Chain or silk would be a little too fussy. Lovely colors!

    Beads in the mail refers to The Beadin’ Path’s Bead of the Month Club. Each month they choose beads, chain, findings, etc, and send them to you for a fixed price. It’s like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get!
