Stained Glass Dreams

About this design:

This is the first design contest I've ever entered. I usually have to think about what I want to make and then just don't end up submitting anything, but I fell in love with every suggested component this time and I was drawn in by the bright, fun colors in the bead mix! I was instantly inspired. :)
I've also never created a multiple-strand necklace before. I went out of my comfort zone to create this necklace, and I'm so glad I did because I LOVE IT!
