Over the Rainbow


About this design:

When LB added the rainbow snakeskin agate beads to their products, I just fell in love with the cheerful colors. I ordered 2 strands immediately and I loved how they looked on the strand. So I wanted to keep it simple and strung the beads onto 2 color purple ropes with knots. I like how it turned out!

Components:

rainbow snakeskin agate, waxed rope (2 purple shades)
