You might remember Maryann commissioned a few necklaces as gifts for her children. She made ceramic beads to be used between the beaded beads, and while we were discussing options I scored some beads from her Etsy shop that needed to come and live at my house. While I was working on the necklaces for her children the focal in this one kept chattering at me that maybe it had changed its mind and wanted to go back and live with MaryAnn. So I made this gift for her~Yesterday I realized it was time, so I forced myself to order more delicas. And since that was such a horrible experience I also ordered more of my favorite Silver glass. And because that was so tedious I hopped around to a couple of my favorite gemstone suppliers and ordered 6mm beads. I then somehow dredged up the energy to order mandrels.
