About this design:

This piece started with the RR connector as a focal for a bracelet. After I added the Vintaj jump rings, and found that lonely blue bead in my stash it turned out to be a necklace.


New Jade matte round, Vintaj jump rings, bead cap, natural brass parawire, natural brass dream affirmation ring, natural brass love knot toggle bar and Czech fire polished rondelles all from Lima Beads. Round Rabbit connector. Brass chain and a lonely blue bead from my stash.

    Let them grow as they wish — that is usually my motto too! Love the way it all came together, and those rondelles are to DIE for!! I never take the time to look through all of those glass beads at Lima — guess I should… I’m more into stones, though, and they are so good here, but one shouldn’t forget the glass, I see…

    I would be dreaming too if I got some Round Rabbit pieces, by the time I get home they are all gone, love how the design had decided on its own, love the colors too :D

    Don’t you just love it when the beads tell you what to do? Sometimes I just sit with my plate full of beads, cock my head, and say “ok, I’m listening…” :)

    LOVE it, Wanda!!

    Asia, you don’t need Round Rabbit. You have the talent to create–you can make your own! :) I know you can do it! We all know you can do it.
