    I took a close up of the bracelet. The colors are good in this one.
    The seed beads are more difficult — or at lezast more time consuming and challenging — to work with, but I’m really liking the effect with all the small pieces flowing together.

    Ok, that I can see! :) Maybe it’s just this crappy computer. :) I’ll look at this again tomorrow at work. :)

    I like the tiny bead stack, too!! I think seed beads that are not uniform shape and size are much more interesting, too!!

    Terrific color in those beads. I really like the design you came up with to use them in. :)

    The colors are cool in this design. The brass picks up the edge of the seed bead, but not so much as to take away from the pastel ones.

    I wish I could see this better. The bracelet photo shows a lot more of the color but its still kinda dark. I know you use a phone like me so I understand. Great design on the necklace & bracelet. Are those wreaths vintaj? You didn’t list components.

    I think your design and photo is wonderful. I just inlarge and can see great detail on my laptop. I love how seed beads look, very dainty but in mass make such a statement. I would go back and get more of these!

    By the way IF you don’t mind telling, where did you get these?

    Hi everyone, THANKS for all the kind words. I like the overall style of this set, so I’ll probably make more with different colors and different focal pieces.
    I know I haven’t been around much lately. Actually I have been… both shopping and looking at all of your designs and picks. I just haven’t spent much time contributing since school ended the last week in May and summer school started this week. SO BUSY!
    I’ve been spending time on Etsy. The seed beads came from a shop called BeadsandBabble.
    I don’t know where I got the wreaths. I thought they were Vintaj from LB, but I didn’t see them when I looked. Maybe from my stash???

    I like this one Julie…..the color and delicacy of the seedbeads go well with those wreaths.
