Sail Away With Me

About this design:

I just love Jade Scott's work. In this piece, I used peanut seed beads that matched the colors in Jade's pendant. I love how this set turned out.

    Gorgeous! The pendant is remarkable. The muted tones of the peanut beads make the brass really stand out. I love the earrings, too! :)

    My sentence structure leaves much to be desired. It should read ” your design is totally as good, if not better, than the pendant.”

    Wow Val. I usually pass right over the peanut beads. Now I will take a better look. I love the pendant, but you have excelled in making your pieces complement it SO well.
