    This is really lovely. I like the way the purple flowers are entwined vine-like on the chain.

    The little purple flowers are Czech glass. I should have made some earings with them.

    It just takes some practice. It is not really that difficult. There is a good book called Beading with Cabachons. See

    You can get real crazy, but if you have a nice cab, it just needs three rows of beads.
