    It’s actually the oiled bronze crystals, dark brown not black, and the oxidixed imprint in the pendant is also a very dark brown. But my pics are very dark so I can see why you see black. Thanks for the love!

    Wow! Love the mix of colors and textures! I wouldn’t have looked at that pendant twice but you’ve made it fabulous! What are those little beads that look half gray and half bronze? They set off the brass wonderfully! Still lusting over those shell chunks too!

    I AM *SO* GOING TO STEAL THIS IDEA!!!!! ;)

    Thanks so much, you guys!!! What an ego boost. :)

    Gail-those are the cream with bronzed edge seed beads that LB has with special coating treatments,the Hybrid Frosted Light Beige Apollo 8/0.

    Deb, it is really easy. you just put the linen strand through a chain link between seed beads, go back and forth every 10 links or so, then come back the opposite direction through the same links. I think it looks like lace, at least that is what I was trying to make it look like. :)
