I've included pictures of the cover, spine, and one of the sets of pages:
This gold necklace is one of the samples in the Firemountain Gems and Beads catalog. I've had my eye on it for several weeks, but needed several sources for the supplies. I got most of them from Firemountain, but also got some from my favorite local bead hangout, Confetti Beads in Surprise. Here is an article about the store that ran in the newpaper.
I really enjoyed making this piece because I learned to make really good "basic loops" for each of the dangles. (Great directions) My thumb was sore, but after several attempts, they turned out nicely!!! All beads are Swarovski (my favorites).
