About this design:

Named for one my favorite Springsteen songs, a bouncy, gutsy, spicy tune that builds to one of the most fabulous, joyous crescendos in all of rock and roll history.

It's my first time working with mooakite. Talk about an explosion of joyous color--wow!


Mooakite nuggets from Lima Beads, copper faceted rice beads, copper S-clasp.

    Gorgeous – your first mooakite piece. Funny, it was a strand of mooakite that got me INTO beading in the first place. Was just browsing in a bead shop on vacation one time and it nearly knocked me over – had to buy it – thought someone would make it up for me – and you know the rest of the story!
