    LOVE IT!!! The dragonfly is AWESOME! Does he stay on top of the bead when you wear it? I’m always afraid the cute part of the bead will slip down and become un-noticed.
    I like how you’ve used the aqua seedbeads as spacers and as your clasp. Very clever!
    Yea! Another idea for my Idea List! :)

    Beautiful! The bright colors are sure to put a smile on your face when you wear it.

    I like the clasp and the tagua (sp) bead (at clasp) is genius ;)
