A trip to Asia

About this design:

I had purchased the different shapes of the cloisonne beads at various times, thinking to make something for my daughter-in-law. Her best friend lives in Japan and my daughter-in-law absolutely loves all things Asian with their delicate beauty. She has added so much beauty to our family that it is a complete joy to do anything for her!


cobalt blue cloisonne beads in various shapes, Siam Swarovski bicones, cobalt blue crystal cubes,red glass pearls, cobalt blue bugle beads (earrings), gold filled Bali daisies and gold plated Bali style spacers
