Baby's Blue Jeans

About this design:

I love these Miyuki tila beads and used shades to remind me of all shades of denim jeans. Used dyed Pacific blue leather and an Italian Genoa pewter rectangular button. The closure is silk wrapping instead of knots.


2mm Pacific blue leather, Miyuki tila beads in denim, light matte blue, metallic blue oil,opaque matte cream, silver plated Genoa button, Japanese K/O gray beading thread.
