    Perhaps she has a really good magnifier!!! This is the perfect title for your necklace . . . Autumn Prelude. I have not tried any of that kind of seed bead work yet and it scares me too somewhat. You are really good at that kind of work. LOve the beads you have used too . . .this looks as though you could wear it with the beads down or the seed beads down or half and half. So, a good one to wear whichever way you like, depending on your mood.

    Beautiful colors to make autumn.
