    Another beautiful design Asia! I don’t think it’s possible for you to create anything less than gorgeous! I just love how you make so many of the pieces yourself, especially the polymer clay, which I am currently no dang good at
    -_- whish you could teach me! But I think we’re a little far apart : P

    By the way- the two little glass rondelles on either side of the leaf connector- who are they? They look lampwork and they are just adorable! Would love to find some- if you don’t mind me asking.
