    Of course you can… it’s a pink Christmas! :)
    This is so beautiful and I love your new sleeker look, too cool! I’m thinking that the blue rainbow quartz rice beads I got a while back would be perfect for this. Is this still stealable or have you patented it? ;)

    Wow Becky..I really REALLY admire your skills.
    This is a great look. You sure did a nice job pulling out the colors of the stones.Thanks for posting this,so we can see the nice quality of the Rhodo beads.
    I find that Lima Bead’s photos don’t do their gem stones justice. Thee have great stuff!

    This is just so lovely. Those rhodies are gorgeous beads. What a lovely necklace one could make with those and some others like garnet for contrast. Yum.

    This is pretty even to a non-pink person! Those stones are gorgeous! Of course, it would looked even better with non pink thread, say…black? What size were those stones again?? :-)

    Thanks, ladies!

    The stones were about 12mm long and 5mm wide. I thought about using black thread but used black leather instead and made sure to let it peek through the braid. I can understand a pinkophobe not wanting to use the pink thread. :) I also could have used darker superduos. There are a lot of possibilities.

    Becky I have to say that I love this bracelet! I am kind of a pinkophobe myself(that’s being challenged now that I have a baby girl! ;) But I just love the colors in this and of course your signature wrap style….such a FABULOUS idea! The colors are just gorgeous! :D
