    Cindy..this has a really nice feel of the dark against the pastels. I’m a huge fan of pink and green. Where did you get that big chunky pink bead that looks like a crystal flower? So pretty!

    @Nancy Mc – Thank you; that flower is a magnetic clasp with a crystal I found at Michaels.

    I say you must make another one, two, three…… All components say yes to me. Oh I did learn that michaels in albuquerque is not the only one without all the great finds I see used in other’s designs. I don’t feel so left out.

Add your thoughts!
