    Oh my gosh,Julia. This set has made me swoon! (I have a thing for currants).
    I soooo agree that your work is precise. Your creations are always so perfect and clean looking,while retaining their personality.
    How did you think of adding Hematite with the Miyuki beads? What a yummy look!

    Thank You, Nancy :) :)

    I mixed three color , two types of seed beads :)

    The darker one has such a glow as hematite does under the light IMHO… so I decided to try.;)

    It took me sometime though to decide what metal to use… obviously hematite itself would go with silver or gunmetal but this beads DEFINITELY did not agree woth silver and gun metal was making top part too heavy looking so… I went with copper ( my favorite anyhow…lol).
