    Ohhhh!!! Thank you so much ladies. I made this awhile ago, but my camera was broken and so I couldn’t take pictures of any. The bead caps were purchased from LB and I had to smash them so they would stay on the beads correctly. I just thought they added to the opals and brought out the colors.

    Thank you Lynn. I was so busy with PTA during school that I really didn’t get a chance to make much. Plus, my camera was out of commission for awhile.
