    Wow Becky, this is fabuloso! What a spectacular mix of beads and colors. And I don’t just love it ’cause green happens to be my favorite color or that it has a SQUIRREL in it. ;)

    Full of woodsy, earthy goodness!!
    I often collect odds and ends during my walks in the woods. My pockets are full of bits and pieces that Mother Nature leaves behind. This gorgeous necklace is like a collection of those little treasures! Love it, Becky!
