    Thank you everyone for the lovely comments.

    Julie it’s not really much of a design to steal, just a three stranded necklace ;) , but I’m honored that you would like it so much that you want to steal it. You do such lovely work.

    Deb if you asked my husband about my beads, well he would just shake his head and walk away hehe, yes I have a lot.

    Each strand would be a beautiful stand alone piece, but together they make music! Love fresh water pearls in anything.

    If you have to many beads then a GOOD sister should be able to get 1 or 2, necklaces I mean. Very beautiful.

    Yes she does gorgeous work and she is a good sis. I don’t do any beading but I got on here when I ordered the beads, so I thought I’d say hi.. She has also commented about me stalking her on here. I do spend a lot of time looking at all the beautiful projects.
