    franny says:

    WOW…this is wonderful & colourful…i purposely didn’t buy these beads (which i now obviously regret, seeing your piece) as i had previously bought the set with wider beads (ladder, maybe) & was very disappointed….they looked like papier mache or decoupage with dull varnish applied….i’m so pleased yours turned out so well!

    Very interesting wire work! I think I know what Nancy meant before, I sprained my brain trying to figure out how this is done! :) It’s all good!

    This was a custom order and they wanted something colorful. When I saw these stones I knew they were a perfect fit. The pendant I hand coiled. I really do not know how to use all of these gadgets and gizmos that are out. I am so not technical. Really don’t even know how to measure. Lol… Honestly I just flow with a piece. I find that sometimes no vision is just as beautiful because you get to make it up along the way.

    Fabulous use of color. These beads remind me of melted crayons. I love it!! The owner is going to be so happy wearing this.

    Julie Shane says:

    SO SO cool! I have to admit I’m afraid of that much color. However I love the effect you’ve accomplished with this necklace. I have one piece of the mosaic stone (from the Easter Egg Hunt) so I might “take a chance” and make something colorful!!!

    Kate says:

    Myrna, unfortunately yes we are out of stock on the middle bead (it is from a graduated ladder strand, I suspect). We do have a few others still on our shelves: http://www.limabeads.com/Mosai.....eads-C7489
