About this design:

I made this a while back with a magnificent Dragon's Blood Jasper pendant I'd purchased. I knew it was too neat to do just a plain single strand, so I spiced it up with Dragon's Blood rounds, red twisted bugle beads, forest iris peanut seed beads, copper freshwater pearls, forest iris regular seed beads, red and green regular seed beads, and a sunflower toggle. It took *hours* to make and at the time was probably the longest I'd spent designing and putting a piece together. I *love* how it came out!

Components:

Dragon's Blood Jasper, freshwater pearls, seed beads, bugle beads

    I love this design. You did a wonderful job of stringing your seed beads throughout the other beads. The colors are beautiful.

    Well, you certainly did it justice. I can’t think of better way to display it. Oh, there’s other just as good ones, but not better

    Beautiful! I love the design and you’ve given me inspiration for a large agate tear drop I have had in my stash for over a year!
