Opals in your Coffee

About this design:

In this design, I used some of the beads that I got from the bead swap earlier this year. The coffee bean jasper and the rice african opal beads were given to me in the swap. Thanks!

    Sarah, you’ve created a wonderful design using your swap beads! Such a lovely color combo, too! I’ve seen those African opal multi-sided rice, but didn’t have any ideas for them….this is a great one! :D

    Thanks ladies! It has taken some time to figure out a design with these beads :-) I had those porcelain jasper beads since my first order here and found nothing to pair them with. I am pleased how it turned out!
