I was Blessed with 2 partners this year!! I was soooo Excited to meet the wonderfully talented Veronica Campos Holstrom.  Veronica sent me a lovely soup that had these great rectangular beads in a green/white/and red/soft blueish collage type pattern on them.  Really cool and i had seen them before!!!  They have a mother of pearl sheen to them as well!!I paired those with the bicone purpley crystals and the pearl beads and then I added the wonderful focal!!1 a Bird House with it's own little birdie!!!  So cute.  I put it on the necklace and looked at it ... looked again...hmmm just not...hmmm... Oh I know!!! I put same color metal filigree behind the house .  That worked I love this. Then I added some crystals to the tassel said that i love it and I was done!!! I have lots more beads from Veronica that I have been working with.  i will post those later....!!! Thank you so much for visiting me!!!  i really had a wonderful time.  Have a Blessed Day!!!
I wanted to say Thank you again the Amazing and Wonderful Lori McDaniel Anderson for all of her incredible work!!! You are my Hero and an inspiration to all of us!!!  Have a Blessed Day!!!

    1. Hi Windancer Studios, I am really glad you like it! I put the filigree behind the birdhouse because it kind of faded you know what I mean? So putting the filigree behind it mad e it more stable and more visible! Have a Blessed Day!!!

  36. Those beads are great. Sometimes I think that beads like that, when looked at up close, look like a blurry map of a forest or a city or a small country. There is so much detail in them. Lovely job using them in your design. Love the bird house and bird too. There is a meadowlark in my yard right now singing his little heart out.

  37. Hi Kelly, I know that have such a cool non-pattern to them. Someone else said they thought of picasso. So there is a lot in there to see. LOL Have a Blessed Day!!!
