Ta ta  ta taaaaaaa






I have to thank Jennifer Pride my partner for the lovely bead soup she sent to me. 
What fun I had thinking of unique ways to put it all together.  This I call:
 Captured
Ceramic donut caged in dark copper wire with a copper bead cap in the center.  Wire wrapped in sections with large hole pony beads, round ceramic beads, large wooden beads are caged in copper wire with copper bead cap ends.  Seed bead mix stitched using nedebele, to add a non symmetrical look to the design.  From my own stash I added dark bronze glass beads that are wire wrapped separately.  And the finishing touch a square copper toggle.

Gorgeous use of all those beads - I love the way you did the donut. Purple is my favorite color next to turquoise.

Gorgeous! I agree with others---the textures are fantastic in this. I love the way that the focal is reversible; not only is it a beautiful piece, but it can work with different outfits, too. :D Fantastic design!
