    Amazing combination of stones–so pretty, and your composition is striking. Definitely a head-turner piece!

    Nancy Mc says: really crossed the line from “beader” to jewelery designer. This piece should be on QVC or JTV,and sell out in 10 minutes. It’s that good. ;)
    Don’t mind me..this one really blew me away!
