Bead Soup reveal


Ok, if I did this correctly it is posting just after Midnight on September 17th at Pacific Time. Serena - thanks so much for the beautiful focal piece, clasp and beads. I had a wonderful time creating this. The colors on the humming bird are just great.

What a beautiful focal! You did a great job of working the colours from the focal into the beading. I love the blocking technique... it really emphasizes the beads and their textures.
