Exotic Orchid

About this design:

OK, licked my wounds from the last one and gave it another try. Reduced the amount of beads and this time got one a bit better. This time used orchid and smoky amethyst magatamas.


Pale orchid magatama, transparent smoky amethyst magatamas, lavender rose Miyuki seed beads, Swarovski cyclamen opal crystal bicones and TierraCast butterfly toggle from LB.
