Cool Spring Hues

About this design:

Just needed to create's been so long. These days I find simple stringing to be the most relaxing.


Kyanite and green garnet wheels, jade(?) faceted rounds, seed beads, antique bronze toggle. All from LB or my LBS.

    This is beautiful. I love the chunky, rondellieness (not a word!, but is a big part of what I love about this piece!), as well as the random placement of beads.
