    Miannda, I am mesmerized by this gorgeous necklace. How many hours of labor would you were required for this necklace? You skills and design capabilities are impressive. I love the mermaid centerpiece. Did you get it thru Lima Beads?

    Thank you Polly Z! The more I make them, the less time they take. First one was very frustrating and took about 1 week+. Now I spent about 3-4 hours on each. Mermaid centerpiece is actually a Czech glass button that I get from this etsy seller:
    Everything else is from Lima :-) .
