    Such beautiful, golden layers! The smaller beads & chain really show off the colorful Cloisonné beads. I like the technique of adding the little blue beads as fringe around the bottom strand. Lovely set!

    This is the most lovely set I’ve seen in a long time. I’d love to try to make at least one piece. I should copy the instruction page. This is one of those times when these blues and blue/green colors overshadow my love of purple.
