I don't plan to do anything with any of it until I talk to my friend about the origin, especially since THIS is one that I made as a special order for someone several years ago:
Even my husband said the minute I pulled it out of the bag - "Didn't YOU make that one?" Yes, honey, I believe I did - but not for Janeile. I'm pretty sure most of the items in the bag DID NOT belong to my friend, so I am rather anxious to find out how she came by it, and why she chose to gift it to me. I definitely need to repay her - either with something beady - or what ever she wishes.
Those are REAL pearls, folks, and the focal piece is a potion BOX. See the little clasp on the left? Those are hard to come by these days. And that faceted crystal! OMG! This is just way too much beady goodness to accept for free.
Off I go to create that Mix It Up bag. Fun! FUN!
Peaceful magical beading,
