Starry Night


About this design:

Thought the white patch on the ceramic barrels looked like stars in the night. I paired them up with some other blue tones.

Components:

Magic Agate, Steel blue (matte) shell pearls, Antique silver clasp and spacers all from Lima Beads. Ceramic barrels from Michaels. Golem studio tubes and rounds.

    ooops forgot to say we probably do Asia :) How many local bead stores to have, where you live? I have three different ones and then Michaels and Wally World. I also think someday we should get together and meet, seeing we live close to one another. Maybe do like a bead exchange or something :)
