    Splendid necklace! The sparkle makes it look like two hole squares. The close up then revealed the intricate trellis and vine. Wow! You rock the world of beads stitching.

    What a beautiful piece BLE. Love the rice beads and the vines on the one side. I forgot to check in yesterday and everyone has been so busy! I like necklaces with the V neck like this one.

    Nice! I love the vine & the airy feel of the clear beads you used for the trellis. The way they reflect the light seems both feminine & fresh. You come up with the most interesting designs–it’s always a joy to see what you’ll post next!
