Those are beautiful. Now I'm much more interested in beadwork. Quite a step up from the "craftsiness" of most bead sites.

LOL Until I found her Etsy site. Wish I hadn't popped my own happy bubble.

Excellent. thanks. I've always found beadwork to be a wonderful meditation; finger work and color therapy together works wonders on stilling the mind.
