    Stunning necklace BLE! I have fallen for copper for several years now. You just strengthened that love. What beading stitch is the necklace?

    These are gorgeous beads. And you have made them into something special. The flower bead cap is just right. It’s an awesome piece.

    Thank you all. Pam – The stitch with the 8/0 beads is a Twisted Herringbone.

    Beautiful BLE…as always!! That’s two designs in a row that Lima has featured. They never feature my designs…I don’t think they like me . Maybe I don’t spend enough money there.

    Subtle beauty! The lampwork beads are gorgeous placed as a focal component on the black rope. They are wonderfully enhanced by the copper flower drop. Great work Beady!
