About this design:

The one remaining bead from the bundle I bought from Asia inspired this necklace.


Asia's bead, Czech beads from LB, gray resin beads (that I never thought I'd find a use for) some small black beads that I've had forever and chain from my stash.

    Thanks Deb. I have been very impressed w/your asymmetrical designs – you have really mastered it. I still feel a bit out of my comfort zone.
