    Pretty Julia. I know it’s beads but it looks soft like velour/velvet.

    That’s a very pretty delicate yellow color of long mag. beads (the ones starting at the bead caps) Deb described it very well – it really does look ‘soft’! Another beautiful creation of yours :)

    Oh wow! Very elegant! Love the sparkle of the Rizo beads and the yellow is an excellent companion to them. It kind of reminds me of 1020′s Flappers.
